Demonstrating a muscular feat of adaptive reuse, Melbourne-based firm Archier managed to incorporate 270 one-tonne blocks of concrete into this fab single-story home on a hill in Yackandandau, Australia. The concrete chunks now fill up parts of the home's perimeter walls—the remaining enclosures include operable timber shutterings that screen a dreamy veranda and a brass wall that hides the kitchen and storage spaces. A pivoting glass door opens up the master bedroom to a private courtyard.
