A bespoke material treatment was thus considered an appropriate urban gesture. The complex travertine façade is made up of 10 different sized slabs of stone laid in bands sourced from opposite sides of the same quarry producing two distinct colours. The banding quality of the stone façade is referential of Byzantine buildings in a reference to the owner’s heritage.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe deep apertures formed in the travertine walls of the first floor façade make the building read as a singular and massive stone edifice and in doing so shade and shelter the western windows as well as protecting the occupant from the nearby major road.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeBy contrast, downstairs is characterised by expansive glazing, opening the living areas to the secluded garden space which surrounds the building. Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeA visitor enters from the street into the heart of the building adjacent a curving staircase rising three floors from basement garage to the upstairs bedrooms. The curving staircase contrasts with the rectilinear form of the exterior and is used as a separation device to define the ground floor living areas into two distinct zones: The day/summer areas facing north and overlooking a pool and outdoor eating area; the night/winter areas facing south and east into the more sheltered back yard. Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessWEISS / MANFREDI to Design Kent State’s New, $40 Million Architecture BuildingArticlesAD Interviews: Chris Wilkinson & Jim Eyre / Wilkinson Eyre ArchitectsInterviews Share photographs:  Peter ClarkePhotographs:  Peter Clarke Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeRecommended ProductsDoorsVitrocsaGlass Technology in Hotel BeaulacEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsDoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesText description provided by the architects. Cassell Street house is a boutique new home built on a corner block in South Yarra, built in place of an attached Edwardian row house and set amongst homes of a similar vintage. The house was designed to be sympathetic with the period but not mimetic of any particular style, whilst remaining unapologetically contemporary.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe limited material palate of natural and aged materials such as travertine, rusticated timber, concrete & steel cast over a strong rectilinear form work to give the building the quality of looking older than it is – to look as though in an another world it could well have been standing in its place unchanged since the 1930s. 2012 ArchDailylast_img read more
