Lake Hillier is a pink-coloured lake on Middle Island in Western Australia. Middle island is the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago, a group of about 105 islands and over 1,200 ‘obstacles to shipping’.
The tiny lake only spans about 600 meters wide but its rose pink colour in unmistakable. However, the reason why it’s pink remains a mystery.
The Bowen Mountain House in New South Wales, Australia evolved from a basic weekender home to a full-service mountain living campus. What started with a simple, yet refined structure came to include a swimming pool, a pool home and a sauna to round out this home’s relaxation experience.
Corrosion-treated steel, reclaimed hardwood and folding glass windows have come together in a brilliant fashion by CplusC Architecture. The sectional roof of the Bowen Mountain House is part of its allure, with a pavilion-style design that creates an open living space below. What is so brilliant about this home is the look and feel of its design, and that it is intimately immersed into its natural environment. We imagine that spending a long weekend in this home, taking in the crisp autumn air, is exactly the kind of relaxation a busy Australian would desire. [via contemporist]
