Natalie Portman cosying up in beautiful Hunter Valley architectural wonder
Reports have claimed A-lister actress Natalie Portman has been seen wondering through the picturesque wine region of Hunter Valley, Australia.
The Post claimed the 39-year-old and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, were seen standing in ankle-high grass as they peered into the blue-roofed brick, stone and wood getaway home in the Hunter Valley.
Their hour-long tour appeared to be guided by the famed architect Glenn Marcus Murcutt, who is the only Australian to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2002).
His modern designs focus on creating living spaces that have low impacts on the environment and priorities indoor-outdoor living.
The house is a sight to see, and one that amplifies his environmental ethos, with its horizontal lines and perfect blend of wood and glass.
The house appears to have hardly any protection from the elements, but seamlessly creates the perfect balance between integrated design and environmentally friendly.
The actress is rumoured to be cosying up into the stunning retreat which offers mountains as a staggering backdrop behind the house.
“Layering and changeability: this is the key, the combination that is worked into most of my buildings. Occupying one of these buildings is like sailing a yacht; you modify and manipulate its form and skin, according to seasonal conditions and natural elements, and work with these to maximise the performance of the building,” said Murcutt in 1996.
Natalie Portman and her husband have been married since 2012 and have two children, Amalia and Aleph.
Portman is in Australia filming her role as Jane Foster in the anticipated Marvel movie “Thor: Love and Thunder.”
