On a bright sunny day, this building used to stand out just a bit. I suspect that the owners will eventually realise the folly of painting a building in colours that fade, and it too will join the sea of amorphous white that adjoins it.
I'm not sure if I get it, nor if I like it even. I am usually a fan of structured topiarised gardens and they look wonderful in front of seventeenth century French Chateau, but the thought of tweaking Australian native plants into these unnatural shapes somehow takes something away from it all.
