Breathtaking beauty on the Coast - Victorian Architecture Awards

I have never seen so many beautiful homes as what there are in this year's Australian Institute of Architects Victorian Architecture Awards. Totally blown away by the amazing work of both designers and builders combined. 

Totally fell in love with this house 'Place to Daydream' house or Demons Bluff house by Tony Hobba architecture. Simply amazing. Breathtaking even!... and it's a renovation. This to me combines amazing craftsmanship in one of Australia's most idealic natural settings. Would love to photograph this house, or better still, enjoy the view for an hour of two from the deck. I look forward to seeing who wins!
