McAthur House is a new modern family home in Melbourne designed by Bryant Alsop that presents a formal, rational face to the street which belies the central double-height glazed void and dynamic flow of  spaces internally. Wrapping around a central courtyard, the void orders the planning and draws light into the centre of the house.

From the architect: The Owners brief required a new family home to be built on a relatively flat site in Melbourne's leafy eastern suburbs. They had always wanted a rendered house, and were looking for a clean, sharp design. The block runs east south, so a C-shaped plan was developed to catch the northern light. A central, double height space sits adjacent this courtyard, allowing light to flood in to all parts of the house. The plan is zoned with older children having a self contained living space and bedrooms on the first floor to the rear of the property. Bryant Alsop Architects worked closely with Mil Constructions throughout the construction stage to achieve a high quality and resolved outcome.
