The might of Marvellous Migrant Modern Melbourne raises its head and casually schools us all with a display of formidable size, form, materials and craftsmanship.
The eternal wellspring of high-end residences and film-set-level Mod chic, the Bagel Belt, serve this up to us and dares us to ignore it. But how can we?
From the very front fence and timber relief entry-wall we are smacked about the head with a collection of stunningly modern spaces festooned with fittings and features only millions of dollars (and perhaps a tradesman time-machine) could replicate today.
Sooooo much desire, so much awe, but really just another day for this side of town.
