HASSELL was approached to create the interior of a new house designed by Robert Mills Architects. Having established a design direction a collaborative process was undertaken to review relevant aspects of the architecture, with the goal to create a fully integrated house from the inside out.

The owners sought to distinguish their house as an urban model within the leafy surrounding context of Melbourne's Toorak. The design expresses a spatial simplicity, in which rooms are interconnected and their functions amplified. Sculptural gestures, such as the central spiral staircase and over sized joinery units, heighten both the scale and a dynamic lifestyle. In essence, this project is a pure exploration in an uncompromising minimalist language.

The new timber, zinc and concrete Ross Street home is a study in surprise. The sharp angularity of the concrete façade and zinc awning blades invoke a clean modernist aesthetic. Inside, the light and mood softens immediately with a rendered steel sculptural staircase as the pivotal ground floor focus, combined with the interiors created by Hassell designers Scott Walker and Robert Backhouse.

As a true example of bringing the outdoors in, frameless glass windows seamlessly link the interior to the same level outside, which includes a 13.5m pool running the length of the north wall
