Stone as a showpiece of every room in this Melbourne home by Biasol
The Bartucca family, who are successive generations of stonemasons, approached design studio Biasol to create the Scalpellino House – a family home that encapsulates modern living and celebrates their family craft and heritage.
“The exquisite beauty of natural stone and the skilful craft of stonemasonry are brought to the fore in this modern family home, with sculptural elements that are compelling on their own, and even more impressive together. Scalpellino House celebrates the Bartucca family’s legacy of stonemasonry, with stone being the showpiece of every room. Precise design detailing and challenging craftsmanship glorify the beauty and character of the stone, creating truly unique joinery and spaces that elevate and enhance the pristine materiality. Honed bluestone connects the entrance, spine wall and staircase, and dramatic Cosmic Gold granite unifies the kitchen, dining and living area. The bathrooms and powder room are immersive spaces enveloped with marble. Elbais soft and calming in the ground-floor bathrooms, while Concordia is striking and theatrical in the powder room,” explains Biasol
