Architecture Wednesday: The Butterfly House

I believe it can fly ....
The Butterfly house, Down Under, outside Sydney with a breathtaking view of the harbor. It soars!
A truly unique home, a state-of-the-art Ed Lippmann design, the Butterfly House is almost handcrafted to create an entertainer's home. The house was originally built in 2005, and has just been updated and modernized, with state of the art home automation.
The rooms are ginormous, all with amazing views, and each redesigned using Feng shui to enhance a sense of easy living. The curved design and glass walls no only bring in as much light as possible, but the curves help to maximize privacy.
It's not a big house, and not a small house; roughly 5900 square feet, along with what is called a 'Showrrom Basement' for garaging 5 cars. It also has a Precor equipped home gym, a home office, monitored video security, and state-of-the-art Crestron home automation. There is also a rooftop terrace, swimming pool, private grassed garden, screening room, Terrazzo finished kitchens with custom island and high end Miele appliances. The private master suite wing with built-in cabinetry and a luxury ensuite. 
It will soon be up for auction.
Do I hear an opening bid?

Wow! That's a killer view of Sydney Harbor. I love the home office for some reason.

It's cool in an art deco/futuristic mashup kinda way.

I love houses like this, but when you open the front you should find a home inside. Instead, this one has what looks like a doctor's office.
