This Australian House Concept Is A Real Cliffhanger...

The Australian prefab architcture specialist Modscape Concepts, have always had the ability to think outside the square, out of left field and now they've gone over the edge with this exciting, is that the word I wonder,
terrifying is more like it, five storied house that literally clings to a cliff face.
Hopefully like the proverbial to a blanket.
Rather than disrupt the natural skyline,
the concept positions Cliff House as it's called, what a great name, precariously over the edge and just above the abyss.
The prefabricated modules are arranged in a vertical floor plan, the rooms stacked atop each other and held securely in place with engineered steel pins. One would enter, I wouldn't, at the floor level with the cliff top, which includes an outdoor patio adjacent to their parking space.
An elevator or stairs connects each floor, with the bedroom, living area and kitchen, each having their own space on the various floors. The interior would be seen as minimalist.
The home opens up on the lowest level to another outdoor space, which seems to float above the water.
I can just imagine fishing from there...


  1. Sure hope they used long enough screws to hold it to the cliff which looks like it has been eroding away for eons. If I lived there, I wouldn't let anyone in who weighed over 150 pounds. . .

  2. Nope, don't like it, does not mesh with my common sense thinking. That cliff was not born that shape, & it will continue to erode.

  3. Is that photoshopped, I hope? If not, its most redeeming design feature is the inevitability of its eventual collapse into the ocean.


  4. When you sign the mortgage you also get free swimming lessons, right? Just in case an earthquake comes.

  5. Well, if you're not going to enter it then you can't go fishing!

  6. It is the height of stupidity.
