After a long week of making modular magic, there is nothing the Modscape team like more than kicking back on the couch with a glass a red wine in hand and a dose of design inspiration on the TV. Our recent favourite is Abstract: The Art of Design – a pithy, entertaining new series that ticks all the boxes for anyone curious about design.
With the help of a handful eccentric design personalities, the Abstract series reveals the creative process behind design and invites viewers to step inside the minds of the most innovative designers and learn how design impacts every aspect of life.
The Waverley Private Hospital expansion and refurbishment project in Waverley, Victoria included the addition of 32 new private rooms for the hospital’s surgical ward. The addition compliments the existing hospital facilities operated by Ramsay Health Care.
As part of a larger redevelopment of Waverley Private hospital, the new modular wing floats above the existing carpark and creates a modern entry statement to the hospital.
Beautiful, innovative and enchanting – no two perspectives are the same when admiring the form of Mexico’s Museo Soumaya.

This month there is one extra reason why you should pick up the latest edition of the brilliant Mezzanine Magazine – there’s an excellent article on off-grid living with Modscape’s Tintaldra project taking centre stage.
Rich in content and packed full of incredible design inspiration, the summer edition of the magazine features a wonderful collection of homes – from Byron to the bush – that exemplify holiday living, with many in remote areas. The article titled ‘Off the Grid’ focuses on what it’s like to build in regional areas and highlights some of the benefits and challenges of off-grid living in Australia.
We love a good photography festival, so we were delighted when our Brooklyn factory recently starred in one.
Earlier this month our Brooklyn factory was asked to take part in the Art & Industry Festival. The Festival enables artists to develop work which is inspired by and engages the ever-changing industrial and manufacturing resources in the Hobsons Bay area.
A key event of the Festival was Western Lights in which artist Phil Lethlean lit up some of the West’s favourite industrial buildings and spaces. Locals and camera buffs alike ventured out after dark with cameras, tripods and smartphones to capture some of these luminously-dressed industrial beacons – including the Modscape factory.
Perching precariously on the rocky cliffs of Mount Kanin in Slovenia rests this charming prefabricated cabin designed to protect hikers and mountaineers from the strong rainstorms and extreme snow fall the mountain is infamously known for.
OFIS Arhitekti designed the shelter as a response to the harsh conditions of rain, wind, snow and landslides but maintained it should have minimal impact to the ground. The particular site was selected because of its spectacular 360-degree view over Slovenia and Italy to the Adriatic Sea.
