The Busst House (1948) • Built for the family of Phyl Busst, a member of Eltham's renowned Montsalvat Artist's Colony, the Busst house was the most complex and comprehensive building of Knox's mudbrick buildings to date. The design highlights Knox's innate understanding of siting and context, especially in a semi-rural context. Situated on a steeply sloping site, the building is entered from an intermediate level, with access from either side to the lower quarters. A studio balcony lies above the living room, while the ground floor bedroom and living quarters have exterior access. Built prior to mobile concrete mixers, and scorning the use of mechanical mixer, two men mixed the whole slab by hand in a single day, requiring 10 tons of screenings and 7 tons of sand. This work was done by Horrie Judd and Gordon Ford, significant figures in their own right. Packed straw was used to allow for the sweeps of the roof, weatherproofed with bitumen and creek gravel, and secured with fencing wire. Knox remarked on the plasticity and sense of homeliness and security afforded by the mud brick, created communally by volunteers. The house is featured in Philip Goad's 'Melbourne Architecture', and several other publications.
