Cliff House – living on the edge!

Now that’s living on the edge! Concept house is pinned to the side of a cliff with unrivaled views of the Indian Ocean

If you’ve ever wanted to have the ocean right at your door, this concept property on the Australian southwest coast seems to be precariously clinging to the side of a cliff – just meters above the sea.

A five storey modular home clings to the side of a cliff in this conceptual design by Modscape.

The aptly named Cliff House extends off a vertical rock face and is anchored to the cliff side with support beams.

The concept home, which seems to almost propel off the overhang, makes the property look as if it is an extension of the landscape.

Minimalist styling: Gorgeous, unbroken views of the Indian Ocean await

Entitled the Cliff House, the design is a theoretical response to clients who have approached Modscape to explore design options for extreme parcels of coastal land in Australia. Inspired 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 architects say that that they were aiming to create ‘an absolute connection with the ocean.’

The home is visualized as a natural extension of the cliff face rather than an addition to the landscape, creating an absolute connection with the ocean. As the design itself would make conventional construction prohibitive, the concept utilities 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.

Residents will enter the property from the cliff top at floor level and will use an elevator or stairs to descend to the bedroom, living area and kitchen.

Cliff-House---living-on-the-edge-5Internally, 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 lowest floor of the concept home will comprise an outdoor space which seemingly floats about the water and a stunning – if rather scary – view of the ocean awaits.
