prefabricated architecture specialists modscape have planned a conceptual property perched above the ocean in the australian state of victoria. the project, which is designed for a couple exploring options for a holiday home, hangs off the cliff face in the same way that barnacles cling to the side of a ship.

 

envisioned as a natural extension of the landscape, the dwelling shares a direct relationship with the sea below, utilizing modular design technologies and prefabrication methods. residents enter the home through a carport positioned at the uppermost level where an elevator vertically connects each sequential storey. interior furnishings are kept as minimal as possible as not to detract from expansive ocean views, and the property’s distinct spatial characteristics.
