Cliff House Hangs On The World’s Edge

The term high rise living has never been more applicable than this five-story conceptual cliff face home on the Australian coast. Planned by design company Modscape and dubbed Cliff House, this remarkable property offers incredible ocean views in a modern and stylish home.

Inspired by barnacles that cling to the hull of a ship, Cliff House is designed to hang from the cliff as a natural extension of the environment. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide breathtaking views of the surrounding coastline and open sea, while the house itself utilises prefabrication methods, each storey attached to the cliff face using specially engineered steel pins.

Entry is possible via the garage on the top floor, with an elevator installed to connect the floors below. The five-level home includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living and dining area, BBQ facilities, as well as a spa. The minimal interior design reflects the stark nature of the land and only serves to accentuate the natural environment.

While we personally wouldn’t be too keen on spending more than a few hours here, especially given the risk of our local erosion rates, it is a pretty damn cool idea. And if you’re interested in exploring more of Modscape’s incredible home designs beyond Cliff House, you can check them out here
