Referential of an ancient Byzantine building, Cassell Street Residence by B.E Architecture, with a strong rectilinear form, made from natural stone, has a quality of looking older than it is.

“Positioned on a corner block, the fa├žade uses bespoke materials on the upper level appropriate for its high visibility from the street.” say the Architects. “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 prodce two distinct tones. The deep apertures formed on the first floor make the building read as a singular and massive stone edifice and in doing so shelter the western windows as well as protecting the occupant from the nearby traffic.”

“Inward facing areas tucked underneath the first level are characterised by expansive glazing that opens the living areas to a secluded garden space which surrounds the building.”

“A visitor enters from the street into the heart of the building passing a grand staircase rising three floors from basement garage to the upstairs bedrooms.”

“The curving staircase contrasts with the strong rectilinear form of the exterior and is used as a separation device to define the ground floor living areas into two distinct zones.”

“The exterior materials carry into the interiors in an inviting palette of travertine, warm greys, natural timber and soft lighting. The travertine floors expand the entire building creating a strong continuity throughout the house.”
