Fresh Builds: The 25 Coolest Houses of April 2013

15. Cassell Steet House

Location: Melbourne, Australia

Architect: b.e. Architecture

Attempting to create a natural, aged look for the home to fit in with its surrounding neighborhood, architects selected materials including travertine, timber, concrete, and steel in constructing both the interior and exterior of the home. Though the home's facade suggests an entirely rectilinear structure, upon entrance a curving staircase is revealed. The living areas are distinct and characterized by function, as the day/summer spaces overlook an outdoor pool and eating area, and the night/winter spaces face a secluded backyard.
