Cliff House

Cliff HouseFive storey modular home clings to the side of a cliff in this conceptual design by Modscape. The Cliff House is a design response for Emma and David, a couple who approached Modscape to explore design options for a holiday home on an extreme parcel of land they own on the south-west coast of Victoria.
Cliff HouseInspired by the way barnacles cling to the hull of a ship, a concept was developed for a modular home to hang off the side of a cliff as opposed to sitting on top of it. The home is visualised as a natural extension of the cliff face rather than an addition to the landscape, creating an absolute connection with the ocean.
Cliff HouseAs the design itself would make conventional construction prohibitive, the concept utilises Modscape’s modular design and prefabrication technologies to deliver a series of stacked modules that are anchored into the cliff face using engineered steel pins. Entry to the home is through a carport on the top floor, where a lift vertically connects you through each of the descending living spaces.
