The abandoned dome house

I finally got around to checking out the abandoned “dome house” – the derelict eyesore infuriating it’s neighbours out east in Lilydale.

Yarra Ranges Council issued a permit for construction back in 2006.  The site has sat derelict for a few years now, recently being vandalised and looted, but the council says they cannot do anything about it.

Neighbours have been battling to have it demolished, with one neighbour stating that it will “knock thousands off his home’s value“.

I’m guessing the owner abandoned the dome house because they ran out of money, but I don’t really have any info.  It would be interesting to see the original design for this place.  It would also have been really awesome to experience the acoustics inside the domes if the walls hadn’t been torn.
