[QUOTE="OakRidge;127407954"] I assume they will add the church in the upcoming years as funds become available.
Yes, you are right - the liturgy has started there it is finished but some parts are going to be added when funds will be found

Uh, that first photo is the Marble House.
On the second, not much of a lot there is it?
First the Chinese copying famous Western buildings and now the Australians too?

In that neighbourhood the building looks odious despite its classical design. Such huge buildings need much more space to exist.

Oops, you're right. I meant to say it is inspired by that building...as you can see here.

The lot is huge but so is the building, as are most of the buildings in this salubrious part of Melbourne. This one just outdoes them all and if you could see what was on there previously you would agree it's a vast improvement.

uhm, Australia is a 'western heritage country' with a rich tradition in historical revival architecture from the 19th century, as much as any other European settlement country, you can't compare Australia to China in that sense. There are many buildings, most of them in fact, that are inspired or copied from famous buildings in Europe, such as the Farnese Palace in Rome etc. Australia, much like many other countries, including western European countries, have modelled their buildings on Greek, Italian and other historical revival influences. The Stamoulis mansion stays true to this tradition and expands and fits in well to Melbourne's rich and prolific traditional, classical heritage building stock.

BTW, this thread is a celebration of buildings in the traditional style and so your criticism of copying or 'immitation' could be levelled at all the buildings here. Also this building is not a pastiche with cheap materials that tries to be pseudo-classical like you see in Vegas or Skopje but use materials, principles and order in the most genuine of classical traditions.

You are wrong. It is on an arterial road and although larger and more imposing than neighbouring mansions, it still sits very well amongst them, albeit more striking. The whole area is full of huge mansions, this one just being the grandest of them all and it is also more set-back on the lot than other neighbouring mansions, therefore not appearing as too over-bearing from street level. Most of the mansions in this highly desirable, 'status' area try to utilise the valuable land as much as possible and although this mansion may seem really huge because it takes up much of the lot, there's still only five bedrooms, not really that big compared to an estate. Toorak is the type of area where you would expect to find buildings of this type, so not out of place at all, on the contrary, a wonderful addition to the area with that 'wow factor'.

Yes, this topic celebrates buildings constructed in traditional styles, you are correct.

But it's one thing to build something inspired by a style, and it's another thing to make a copy of something that already exists. This building is the later.

It can be a triumph of craftsmanship, and that is great! I can appreciate that aspect. I never said it was a 'cheap copy'. I haven't seen it in person, I can't make such judgment. But to me it loses points on what comes to creativity and originality. Also when they build such deliberate copies of buildings, I will compare them and point out what they did 'wrong' on the copy (because let's face it, they hardly ever make the copies better than the originals). Just my personal opinion here.

(and I do think the lot is too small for a house this size, also. We're used to seeing palatial mansions like this with huge lawns all around. They should have bought out everybody directly adjacent on both sides and made the property bigger. When you build something like this you need to go nuts! )

It's nice to see some more classical architecture in Australia, a place where modernism has been allowed to run loose for far too long.
