Small-Sized Nature Retreat Overlooking the Ocean: Moonlight Cabin in Australia

Small-Sized Nature Retreat Overlooking the Ocean: Moonlight Cabin in Australia | Catalan Independence | Scoop.it

Overlooking the ocean in Victoria, Australia, the Moonlight Cabin by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects is said to engage with the landscape’s ephemeral conditions. Modest in size, the residence answers the living needs of the owners, while making use of sustainable features: “The built form is fully screened in a spotted-gum rain screen that acts like a ‘goretex jacket’ to protect the cabin from the elements while the timber is free to move naturally in the changing climatic conditions. Its small footprint shelter (60m2) explores the boundaries of how small is too small, challenging conventional notions of what is actually necessary in our lives”, the architects explained.

A Modern House in Nature

A Modern House in Nature | Catalan Independence | Scoop.it

Located about 90 minutes north of Montreal, Spahaus was built by YH2 on the banks of Lac Supérieur (Lake Superior) on a mountain that once housed a religious congregation. In its place, an innovative new approach is being built to help integrate modern architecture into a natural environment. Developers hired YH2 to design the new series of residences to be situated on the northern side of the Mont-Tremblant ski resort in hopes of attracting a new generation of design loving homeowners. Instead of traditional log-style cabins or cottages, they’ve taken a different approach with the first design, name Spahaus, which marries wood and concrete, and boasts amazing panoramic views of its lush location.

Newly discovered comet to light up the skies in 2013 | Catalan Independence | Scoop.it

A new comet has been discovered that is predicted to blaze incredibly brilliantly in the skies during late 2013. With a perihelion passage of less than two million kilometres from the Sun on 28 November 2013, current predictions are of an object that will dazzle the eye at up to magnitude —16. That's far brighter than the full Moon.
