You couldn’t get better views of the ocean if you tried. But you’d need unconditional trust in the engineering arts to really relax in this holiday home.
The five-storey concept house is Modscape’s response to a request from a couple who asked them to explore ways of building on their extreme parcel of land in Victoria, Australia. Inspired by the idea of barnacles clinging to a ship’s hull, the house is anchored with steel struts to a sheer cliff face for the ultimate in views of the sea. According to the design, the series of five stacked pre-fabricated modules would be reached by an elevator from the carport at the uppermost level. Not exactly a holiday home concept for the faint-hearted!
