Mason House in Melbourne

When designing Mason House Bryant Alsop responded to their client’s desire for a bold, heroic design, while avoiding opulence. The home is a sculptural vessel with spaces for family and friends to gather. For the new owner, purchasing the property from a family friend meant the Victorian house came imbued with memories.

A sense of ‘layering’ of families, childhoods and recollections plays strongly through the design.

The existing dwelling was restored with the formality and vertical language of Victorian buildings used to inform a dialogue between existing and contemporary forms where the scale of new spaces are proportionate with the original house. The singular form of the extension is defined by the rhythm and repetition of curved elements that are used as simple, broad sweeping gestures.

Hard materials are tempered by soft shapes to create enveloping spaces, while the backyard is celebrated with a garden that will evolve with the family over time.
