This concrete glass home by William Russell is a great industrial structure housing an amazing art collection. I don’t know that I would want to live in what looks to be a busy part of town. Built for his own occupation by the architect William Russell in 2002, the house was extended and altered by Form Design Architecture in 2009. The current resident has a great design style that compliments the architecture. I appreciate the addition of some wood in the cabinets and walls, it adds a little warmth in an otherwise industrial structure.
“The house was built using an in-situ reinforced concrete structure, with galvanised steel panels and huge windows. Internally the raw concrete is revealed on walls and ceilings, and has also been used for the staircase. The upper part of the building is predominantly glazed, and glows like a lantern at night.”
