Luxury Retreat Hidden Within Australian Outback


It’s hard to imagine a place that could offer more peace and tranquility than Pretty Beach House in Australia. Located just north of Sydney, the seven-acre property is nestled amongst the trees at the edge of a beautiful beach.

The pool is sunken below a surrounding teak terrace, which has openings for tree trunks to pass through. This contemporary architectural approach allows the residence to fit snugly into the landscape in a nature but sophisticated way.

Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
