    Too sterile! No warmth, nothing inviting about it for me.

    ^I agree with the not inviting thing. I kinda dig the windows and modern feel, but this doesn't seem super functional maybe??

    It seems like somewhere that would be great to stay for a short time, but i don't think it looks comfy or cozy enough to live there.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.
    I love & miss you Dad.

    Agreed. It looks like an office reception area - and probably has the same feeling too.

    i love the juxtaposition of old & new. the church wall contrasts beautifully with the modern extension. from the outside, that glass facade does look like an office window, but from the inside it's more like you're looking out of a modern church window. that's the impression i get, anyway. i think i could easily live there, it has all the essentials. and it looks like a very serene place with a quiet & relaxing atmosphere.

    God, even the bed looks uncomfortable.

    It's got those indoor/outdoor rooms which I guess works in the Queensland climate. I quite like the lawn/central courtyard idea but I doubt any kids live there despite the carefully placed red billycart.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Too linear.
