Falling off a cliff (or not)By Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows
We love unusual houses and this might be one of the coolest we have ever seen. It might also take the trophy for most sickness-inducing house. It sort of looks like a house that got blown over in a storm and is now clinging–just barely–to a cliff’s side.
However, this is actually the way this house is supposed to be! Modscape, an Australian architectural firm, was “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.”
So how does it work, physics-wise? Stacking, of course. Modscape used pre-fabricated modules to create levels that are held together with steel pins.
And how do you get in the house? It starts at the top of the cliff with a patio and parking. From there, you go level by level to eat, sleep, work and play. Since this is a highly vertical house, there is an elevator in addition to stairs. Here is a floor plan:
What do you think? Would you enjoy the gorgeous ocean views, or just worry about falling off a cliff?
