Mt Macedon install

Categories Architecture, ModscapePosted on

Earlier this month we installed a stunningly simple weekender at Mt Macedon.

The two bedroom/ two ensuite retreat was constructed out of four modules and has a large deck running along its length – perfect for watching the sun set over the beautiful ranges.

This short video shows the one day installation. More detail about the project, including a floorplan and photos, will be on our website in the coming months – so watch this space.

Iconic modular apartment complex celebrates 50th anniversary

Categories ArchitecturePosted on

Building modular is not a new concept. And while building technology has come far and we have greater flexibility in design, every now and then it’s nice to reflect and appreciate the exemplary pioneers.

Modular building Habitat 67 in Montreal, Canada celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and one of the apartments has undergone a beautiful interior renovation that we love. The redesign is fresh and crisp yet remains sympathetic to its iconic brutalist origins.

Modscape worked closely with Calvary Health Care and Erilyan to construct additional patient rooms for their St Luke’s Hospital in Launceston, Tasmania.

The hospital chose a modular solution to enable them to quickly meet their increasing accommodation demands. Minimal time spent onsite meant less disruption to the day-to-day running of the hospital. The construction was completed in 8 weeks with the modules being installed in one day. A further 6eeks onsite and the rooms were ready for new patients.

We love any excuse to celebrate design. And the new Melbourne Design Week is no exception.

The ten-day event running from 16-26 March 2017 is a new initiative created by the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) and the Victorian government and aims to promote Melbourne as one of the design capitals of the world. The event will offer talks, tours, workshops and industry events to help strengthen, support and promote the design industry. 

Abstract: The Art of Design

Categories Architecture, Design, Things We LovePosted on

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.
