Cassel Street Residence by b.e architecture

This neutral contemporary home is located in South Yarra and was designed by b.e architecture. The two-story home features a unique design that makes it look timeless yet modern.

From the architect:

The house on Cassell Street is referential of an ancient Byzantine building. The strong rectilinear form, made from natural stone, has a quality of looking older than it is – as though it could have been standing in the same place unchanged for a hundred years or existed in another world all together. Positioned on a corner block, the façade uses bespoke materials on the upper level appropriate for its high visibility from the street. The subtle bandings of travertine is made up from 10 different sized slabs of stone hand selected from opposite sides of the same quarry to produce two distinct tones.
