This Even Beyond Living On The Edge! Brilliant and Scary!

Friday, September 12, 2014 |
So far I only knew some famous places that offered you the opportunity of a breathtaking view, such as the amazing viewing platform at the edge of the Grand Canyon and restaurants on the roof of the tallest buildings in the world...but these are for the masses as this unique pioneering design proves!

Here is the modular house design concept which 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 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.
As 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 the user through each of the descending living spaces. Internally, 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.
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.
The company specializes in creating modular, prefabricated housing through collaboration with architects and engineers.
If you’ve ever dreamt of waking up to stunning sea views, then how about living in this home pinned precariously to the side of a cliff face?
The concept Cliff House would offer unrivalled views of the Indian Ocean for couples who like to live life on the edge! What are you waiting for....probably winning the lottery!
