From sprawling coastal Country Clubs and lush resorts to secluded private residences, the Mexican architect Carlos Herrera is known throughout Latin America for his sophisticated approach to contemporary luxury on every scale. His own home in Cuernavaca, some thirty minutes south of Mexico City, is no exception: the expansive, concrete concoction reveals an earthy, elemental kind of modernism with simple, heavy furnishings and endless stretches of travertine and marble.

Australian architect Matt Gibson took cues from the designs of European Modernists for this pair of extensions he has added to the rear of a Victorian-era residence in Melbourne. Gibson – who also recently competed a house inspired by Brazilian Modernist architects – designed the home for a family returning to Australia after more than a decade living in London.

The 225-square-metre residence fills a gap measuring less than six metres wide between two existing buildings in Sant Cugat – a town north of Barcelona that is also home to a picturesque Medieval monastery, an architecture school and a chocolate factory.

Architect Matt Gibson drew inspiration from mid-century Modernist architecture in Brazil for the design of this concrete and stone house in a Melbourne suburb. Gibson, who has studios in both Sydney and Melbourne, designed Concrete House to provide the home for the family of a commercial builder specialising in masonry. This client requested a house built from concrete and stone palette, but also asked for it to reference the architecture of Brazilian Modernists such as Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa and Paulo Mendes Da Rocha – whose work often features bold forms, protruding volumes and raw concrete surfaces.
