Bowen Mountain NSW  Australia – CplusC Architecture

We probably all have a different image of what a mountain home looks like.  Of course, by world standards, Australian mountains are nothing more than big hills, but a weekend retreat just 80 kilometres (50 miles) from Sydney would be on many Sydneysider’s wish list. The air is cool and clean, the traffic is non-existent and the pool is calling.

We’ll let the architect do the talking:

“Conceived as a simple weekender, this pavilion house grew to include extensive landscaping, swimming pool, pool house and sauna, with spectacular results. An existing hut was retained on-site, recognising traditional construction methods and local materials. A courtyard serves as the entry point to the home, connecting the new sustainable home to the hut. An extensive use of glazing provides a 360° aspect of the site from the indoors, while outdoor decks and terraces respond to the site’s natural topography, allowing both to merge seamlessly and exist harmoniously with the surrounding bush.”
