Bass Street Residence by B.E Architecture
B.E Architecture, a Melbourne based studio, has designed the Bass Street Residence in Melbourne, Australia. Its design features stacked, rectangular forms that have slightly angled walls in opposite directions. The front facade holds a large window which cuts through the corner of the upper volume giving the master bedroom views of the water. On the opposite corner of this window, a private outdoor terrace overlooks the native trees on the property. The vertical lines of the wooden-clad exterior add emphasis to the structure.
The interior is divided in two levels from which the lower level is outfitted with wooden floors and features flexible spaces such as guest accommodations and studies while the open, upper level is dedicated to the master bedroom and bathroom.
From the architects: “A stacked rectilinear form, Bass Street Residence uses a series of subtly angled walls in opposing directions so the building composition creates a slight sense of tension between the property’s two key outlooks. A singular cutout in the front façade angles towards distant water views from the master bedroom.”
