Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.

@tasmania’s tough 6-8 day South Coast Track hike weaves in and out of a series of bays, beaches and inlets, separated by challenging mountain ranges and river crossings.
Many walkers take the opportunity on rest days to explore further, including this incredible spot - Louisa Bay.
At low tide, the sand bar allows access into Louisa Island, enabling you to get even further into a place few have experienced before.
@paraviontas run day scenic tours flying into the UNESCO listed South West Wilderness, but are also the preferred transport for walkers doing the hikes.

The light peaks through the jagged tunnel of the beautiful Remarkable Cave, found in the Tasman National Park. The park is dotted with unique rock formations that tell a beautiful tale of nature’s force and time.
Internationally renowned photographer William Patino visited Tasmania for the first time ever this past weekend under the guidance of local Francois Fourie. They braved the very early hours of the morning to capture this incredible shot of the Remarkable Cave.

Gazing down on @tasmania’s wild and isolated South West wilderness, you half expect to see herds of grazing dinosaurs wandering the deep and wide valleys! Haha!
This is an ancient landscape, far removed from our daily lives - yet just a 50 minute flight from #Hobart with the fabulous crew at @paraviontas!

The mighty Southern Ocean has beaten the coastline of southern @tasmania into a rugged, jagged epic place of beauty.
From the air with @paraviontas you get a grand sense of the powerful forces that have shaped this incredibly wild place.
The rich colours too are mesmerising, as the thick ancient forests greet rocky outcrops which falls away into the deep blue sea.
Tassie has to be the best place on this planet surely?!
Taste of the sea.
