Clings to a extreme cliff on the south-west coast of Victoria, this five-story glass building is a concept holiday home designed by Australian modular and prefab house company Modscape for a couple.
The house utilises Modscape modular design and prefabrication technologies to deliver a series of stacked modules that are anchored into the cliff face using engineered steel pins.
Entry to the home is through a carport on the top floor, where a lift vertically connects you through each of the descending living spaces. Inside feature minimalistic furnishings to ensure that the transcendent ocean views and the unique spatial experience of the location.
Inspiration from architect:
Inspired by the way barnacles cling to the hull of a ship, a concept was developed for a modular home to hang off the side of a cliff as opposed to sitting on top of it. The home is visualised as a natural extension of the cliff face rather than an addition to the landscape, creating an absolute connection with the ocean.
