Coastal Pavilions at Freycinet Lodge by Liminal Architecture
The Freycinet national park in Tasmania is full of natural wonders to explore, but the Coastal pavilions at Freycinet Lodge may just succeed in tempting visitors to stay in all day.
Designed by Hobart Tasmania based Liminal Architecture, the Coastal pavilions are no ordinary rustic cabins. Their curvy shape may look alien at first sight but are in fact inspired by key features of the local landscape. The smooth rounded edges reflect the granite boulder formations whilst the shape of the pavilion, with the bed and living "pods" forming two protective arms embracing the outdoor bath in between them, references the spectacular bay below. The exterior of the pavilions are clad in charred hardwood and glass, which looks sleek and discrete within the landscape. Inside, the extensive wood panelling and neutral colour palette creates an organic and serene atmosphere which puts the emphasis squarely on the stunning views outside.
Shop the Style
Get the serene organic look with natural style curvy furniture such as the Chubby Chic armchair from Diesel Living, the Lunar Dining Table from Stellar Works and the Treasure Table from Frederik Roije.
Natural style lights such as the Scraplight Hive suspension light from Graypants and the Kim suspension light from LZF would look wonderful in the pavilions. For an equally organic but slightly quirky touch try the Cave table light from Moustache.
