A classic mid-century home in Melbourne’s leafy east has been given a new lease of life, capturing the hallmarks of the modern architectural movement.

Toronto firm Studio AC has transformed a cramped local residence into a light-filled, spacious interior with natural stone and pale wood throughout.

Matera is a quiet town in Italy known for its houses that are dug into intricate rock formations. “Sassi” is how the Italians refer to them, which is the Italian word for stone. A Sasso is a typical expression of Matera architecture.
