Total House is a commercial building on Russell Street in Melbourne, Australia. It contains seven levels of car parking above which sit four levels of offices, and a basement.

Built in 1965, is one of the earliest examples of Brutalist architecture in Victoria.

It was listed on the Victorian Heritage Register in 2014.

The basement originally contained the glamorous Lido theatre restaurant and nightclub. In the mid-1970s it operated as the 600-seat Total Theatre, housing theatre productions including the Australian premiere of Guys and Dolls and the controversial revue Let My People Come. Today it is a major live-music venue named 170 Russell, previously named Billboard, with a 900-person capacity.
