Stalking modern in Melbourne

Pardon me. I'm stalking again. I thought something a little more contemporary this time. A home in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote.

Both sitting rooms, the transition from inside to out and those "stolen" views. Designed by award-winning architect Robert Simeoni you can find the link here while it lasts.
