This Cliff House Designed By Modscape Is Suspended Above the Australian Ocean
This cliff house designed by Modscape Concept is the reality of living on the edge.
We continue our talks about things hanging up in the air, or on the cliffs with the cliff house that has Indian Ocean views.
It is the perfect place to cure anyone who is afraid of heights. The aptly-named Cliff House is a five-story vacation home designed to use off the southwest coast of Victoria.
This house redefines ‘living dangerously’ with its vast floor to ceiling windows and slender steel supports acting as the only separation between you and the ocean.
Who designed this cliff house?
The owners of this concept have teamed up with Modscape of Australia to design their compact dream house, place strategically above water, hanging off the cliff’s edge.
Although it’s still a concept, the house will be accessible only through the carport on the top floor with a lift that goes to each floor.
From what will be build?
Built from pre-fabricated modules that are stacked onto each other and anchored to the cliff with the help of the steel pins just like how barnacles cling to the hulls of ships.
In response to extreme coastal conditions, the ocean-side wall of the of the home tapers toward the cliff-side creating an angled glass-curtain interior throughout the home.
The amazing place sits beneath a cliff top level two car garage which is invisible from outside.
Once you are inside, you will be amazed by the panoramic views offered in each of the glass-encased spaces.
The spaces are stacked to grow more private from top to bottom, with the kitchen stacked above the living room, stacked above the bedrooms, with a private terrace beneath.
The modestly proportioned home includes a full kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms including an en-suite, and a spa on the open air terrace.
Modscape surely put its stamp on the house and you can see it from its signature modular design style, rooted in sustainability and speed.
The designers at Modscape have described the home as a “natural extension of the cliff face rather than an addition to the landscape, creating an absolute connection with the ocean.”
Each ‘room’ or floor will then be stacked atop the other and held in place with engineered steel pins which are driven into the cliff face.
