A spectacular, hollow concrete rectangle sitting atop the ground floor, Matt Gibson Architecture‘s Concrete House is designed to forge a direct relationship between inside and out. With the living spaces facing the north and bedrooms towards the south, the contemporary build looks just as remarkable from the back as the front with a near mirror image in its appearance. Located in Melbourne, Australia, the Concrete House maintains privacy in the front thanks to a timber frame, with no windows on the side of the property. The garden houses a pool and tennis court for the owners to enjoy too.
