Living On The Edge: Australians Design House That Hangs Off Cliff
The five-storey home hangs to a cliff, inspired by the way barnacles cling to a ship's hull, and was imagined for the diverse Australian landscape.
The design is a theoretical response to clients who have approached Modscape to explore design options for extreme parcels of coastal land in Australia.
The company creates homes using modules, with a steel frame and structurally insulated panels, in a factory before assembling on site. The modules can be used to create a huge variety of configurations to suit any space.
Like all amazing environment-aware architecture, this home is made to become one with the cliff, rather than a disconnected object sitting on top.
"How do I get in?" is no doubt the first question one would ask before buying such a home. This would be through the top-level garage. You can then move between the floors by the use of a lift.
You should dispose of any over-the-top furniture before moving into this home. Although it might initially feel like you are living in a cave, the designers have kept the furnishings simple to accentuate the ridiculous view.
"Internally, the living spaces feature minimalistic furnishings to ensure that the transcendent views of the ocean and the unique spatial experience of the location remain the integral focal point of the design," the website said.
