The Bowen Mountain house has been designed by CplusC Architecture in New South Wales, Australia. The home was originally conceived to be a simple weekend getaway home, but the pavilion house grew into something much more substantial. The original brief was expanded to include landscaping, a pool, pool house and sauna with the most stunning results. The 2,260 square foot (210 square meters) structure was composed of a steel frame, with the addition of new and recycled Australian hardwoods to finish the facade. Soft-toned grey steel was used for the dramatically angled roof, which blends with the muted tones of the surrounding bush.
An existing hut was retained on-site, recognizing traditional construction methods and local materials. A courtyard serves as the entry point to the home, connecting the new building to the hut. An extensive use of windows 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.
