Scalpellino House is a beautiful home that celebrates the art of stonemasonry and the beauty and uniqueness of this craft. The house is located in Melbourne, Australia and was built by the architecture and design studio Biasol.
It has a generous floor plan that extends over 280 square meters and is spread over two floors. The arrangement of the rooms places the bedrooms and their respective bathrooms on the ground floor so that the first floor can be dedicated to the social areas. The living room, kitchen and dining areas are connected and seamlessly combined into an inviting and airy social floor plan. Given the overall theme of this project, stone in various shapes is at the heart of every single area.
The entrance is clad in polished bluestone, the same material that the stairs are made of. Its distinctive look and texture combine both the interior and exterior of the house, as well as the floors and their separate functions. The kitchen is closely related to the interior of the house and features an elegant island made of Cosmic Gold granite. It has a waterfall switch and is coordinated with the bespoke entertainment center in the living room. Minimalism and sophistication are features that define every single room in this beautiful home and the architects, together with the owners, have found the perfect way to make stone a part of its design. Other variations of this material can be seen in the private areas of the home, namely the bedrooms with stylish bedside tables and the bathrooms with marble floors, walls and vanities.
