Aussie architect Matt Gibson is clearly taking some stylistic cues from the contemporary greats of Brazilian architecture in his design for this brawny modernist house in a suburb of Melbourne. Composed of twin two-story volumes of concrete and stone, the house is reminiscent of the beautifully composed modernist dwellings masterminded by architects like Marcio Kogan (of Studio MK27) and designer Isay Weinfeld. Inside Gibson's "Concrete House," the common spaces are open-plan and airy, including a double-height living room and a pretty dreamy kitchen. From all interiors, an outdoor space—whether backyard garden or interior courtyard—is but a step away.
