Designed by Rockefeller Partners Architects this house is located off a walking street with great views of the Pacific Ocean and Malibu coastline. Its design is all about a careful space planning. The site is a narrow 30×60-foot area, but it includes not only the house but also a garden. This garden is an open green space in the center of the structure at the ground floor level. On one side of this area is a children’s room and a master’s bedroom with a bath. Not only this Zen garden makes the interior to be closer to nature. There are a lot of woodwork that also do so and adds a touch of comfort to the house. Rockefeller Partners Architects | Photography by Eric Staudenmaier ]

Strahan Beach was “once known as ‘Hell’s Gate’,” according to CNN. “The harbor was only seen by the most despised convicts en route to Sarah Island. It later became the scene of a long-running conservation battle, when the Tasmanian government planned a dam before being stymied by the federal government. Now it’s part of a World Heritage Area that encompasses 20 percent of Tasmania. It’s home to 2,000-year-old Huon Pines among the ancient, temperate rainforests. Hundreds of endemic fauna species include the Tasmanian Devil, Eastern Quoll, velvet worms and the 250 million-year-old Mountain Shrimp — one of nature’s first crustaceans.”

The bee pictured above, known as Augochloropsis sumptuosa, is a sand specialist, he explains. “It hangs out [on the] sand hills of North Carolina. You’ll see them on the Eastern Shore in the dune areas.”
This species forages for pollen from flowers located on the edges of those sand dunes.

Paradise Lost - Erez Marom
This is, just what I used to imagine when hearing the word “Seychelles”. The magical beach of Anse Source d’Argent didn’t fail, and rewarded me with its renowned eye candy. Anse Source d’Argent, La Digue island, Seychelles.
