Modular House Design Concept Clings to the Side of a Cliff

In response to a number of clients seeking options for living on extreme coastal plots, Australian prefab architecture firm Modscape created the Cliff House, a design concept for a home that extends precariously from the side of a cliff. Inspired by the way barnacles hang on to a ship’s hull, the Cliff House clings to the cliff’s edge, providing a thrilling view of the surrounding landscape and ocean waters.

The innovative, five-story home takes advantage of modular design and prefabrication techniques to deliver a series of modules stacked vertically on top of each other, attached to the cliff using engineered steel pins. Residents enter at the top floor, then descend to each level via a lift. A barbecue and jacuzzi area at the bottom floor provides an immediate connection with the sea, further emphasizing the Cliff House’s unique design as a natural extension of the cliff.
