CLIFF HOUSE: Extreme Cliff Modular House By Modscape Concept


Only the uppermost portion of this ambitious five-level home is visible when approaching from land, preserving the views for others and making for one dramatic way to live adjacent to the sea. Cliff House by Modscape Concept is a response to the demand in Australia for residences to be built along extreme parcels of rocky land on the coast. The clients approached Modscape to explore options for a vacation home on the southwest coast of Victoria, where they own a piece of land that could prove a challenge for more conventional architectural solutions.The architects took inspiration from the way barnacles cling to the hull of a ship, hanging the home off the side of the cliff instead of perching it at the edge. This configuration makes it feel like an extension of the cliff face, opening up incredible views of the water.


The prefabricated, modular house would be anchored to the cliff using engineered steel pins, with entrance through a carport on the top floor. All Modscape prefab homes and buildings are made using modules. A module is a fully welded structural steel frame that uses structurally insulated panels to create a highly insulated cell.


Modules are used to create almost any configuration of spaces and can be made at any size to suit your site and design. Design and finish options are limitless, but every design is the result of a genuine collaboration with each client that centres around their site, specific project requirements and budget.
