A combined love of nature, low impact living, design and architecture and the need for relaxation and appreciation of life set the wheels in motion for Lost Retreats.
Actress Teresa Palmer and long time friends Steve Brooks, Cameron Keen and Damien Chwalisz instantly saw the potential in bringing together their shared love for stripped-back living, travel and individual skillsets.
Lost Retreats does just that; beautifully crafted, sustainable dwellings set amongst the backdrop of our states idyllic landscapes.
The ever-present need to pause from the constant demands of daily life to get outdoors and spend quality time with family and friends is just one of the reasons behind this venture.
Teresa’s adoration for the great outdoors and life’s simple pleasures has guided the aesthetics and functionality of the retreats, which take their cues from their natural surrounds, providing guests with an opportunity to truly be present and bask in the beauty of the location.
With a light footprint being at the forefront of Lost Retreats; Master Builder, Cameron Keen, will draw inspiration from his time working and building with Indigenous Communities in Arnhem Land.
It is during this time, where he saw the deep wisdom of utilising the environment to enrich daily living and ensure that connection to the natural surrounds is a part of everyday habits.
Naturally, there will be a strong focus on repurposed, sustainable and recycled materials in building the Lost Retreats.
Award-winning Architect and sustainable building specialist, Damien Chwalisz, rounds out the team, bringing an undeniable arsenal of talent for boundary-pushing designs and sustainable practices.
He is also a licensed Timber Classifier, a unique proficiency that comes into its own when working with recycled materials ensuring a light footprint.
These ideologies and practices are what set Lost Retreats up to introduce a new era of simplified luxury in off-grid accommodation that rejoices in their natural surrounds, celebrating the synergy of nature and shelter.
The first Lost Retreat will begin welcoming visitors in a few months, with more retreats to follow soon after.
