Living in a Glass House...

 Taking the notion of living in a glass house 
as a literal concept,
this home in Toorak would never be short of natural daylight.

 Look carefully at the stair treads. 
See how they are attached to one side only,
floating on the other?
Lovely detailing.
 Using black for the transoms (& frames) of the windows
helps to accentuate the horizontal lines of the rooms, 
so even though the spaces are large, 
they still feel homely and comfortable. 
 And wherever the eye falls, there is a sense of looking out through glass
to the changing seasons outside.
The front facade, interestingly, 
gives no clue to the open glass walls of the rest of the house. 
I love a good mystery! 
But when one walks through the white corridor 
from the front door, 
almost as a bridge,
the glass walls are revealed, layer by layer,
to create a space of intrigue and drama.
