Concrete has been the tool of experimental architects wanting to play with form, texture and beauty ever since the high-watermark of brutalism in the 1950s and '60s. Matt Gibson Architecture studio's stunning Concrete House in Melbourne's suburbs is arguably a continuation of that tradition, bridging the ideas first espoused by the mid-century Modernist movement, and weaving them with the ideals, aesthetics and bare-faced construction materials of today to form a rich tapestry that's played out across the house.

Constructed of two horizontally placed slabs of concrete, wood and stone that have been placed together side by side, the house plays with form and dimensions as horizontal and vertical material sets are combined to create a light, airy and decidedly simple aesthetic - both inside and out. The roughness of the concrete, wood and stone contrasts harmoniously with the more contemporary material choices of glass and steel, providing an ideal backdrop for the client's impressive collection of artwork and furniture.
