Photo of Interest: Cliff House

“Cliff House,” by Modscape of Australia

Here’s another image from the Telegraph Online. They describe it this way: 

“Anyone wanting to live on the edge need look no further – architects have designed a cliff house. The five storey modular home is inspired by the way barnacles cling to the hull of a ship, and was developed to hang off the side of a cliff as opposed to sitting on top of it. Australian design company Modscape say the design, aptly entitled Cliff House, is a theoretical response to clients who have approached them to ‘explore design options for extreme parcels of coastal land in Australia’. A spokesman says: ‘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.'”

You know the view has got to be spectacular.
