Framed by wild forest and cradled by a glimmering bay, Piermont is a sanctuary of understated luxury hidden in Tasmania’s remote East Coast. Now accommodating those who want to stay a little longer, the retreat is creating a series of secluded Waterfront Properties. Working with highly-awarded architects JCB and revered studio Hecker Guthrie, the properties are designed to harmonize with their serene environment, providing a restful, contemporary lifestyle in a rare corner of the Freycinet Coast.
Located on a secluded north-facing site beside the existing suites, cottages, and amenities, the architectural vision is for the 32 properties to integrate seamlessly with the coastal sanctuary. Designed for a sophisticated yet effortless indoor-outdoor lifestyle, the properties will feature bi-fold timber shutters that can be closed down for privacy, or expanded out to the invigorating sea air and views. Key elements include local stone, timber and native plants layered upon strong foundations of sustainability and craftsmanship. For the interior, Hecker Guthrie has crafted enriching atmospheres that fuse contemporary design and local artistry with the retreat’s timeless European elegance. Bringing Piermont’s landscape and rich cultural heritage indoors, the rooms will be highly tactile, favoring natural materials such as local timber, stone, marble, and linens all cast in moody hues. It is clear from these artist impressions that craftsmanship and quality underpin every design choice, for properties that nurture senses and soul.
