Inspired by the way in which barnacles latch on to rock and the side of the hulls of ships, Australian architecture collective Modscape have designed a modular home that delivers an ocean view like no other. Not for those afraid of heights, or water for that matter, the home is designed to be anchored to a cliff face via steel pins and will act as a natural extension rather than being built like a traditional home near the edge.  The home is accessible through the top two-car overhang where a staircase and lift take you to the remaining four floors below.
