The detailed modular construction process can be a difficult one to grasp, yet the many advantages are worth understanding for anyone looking to design and build a new home.
To aid this understanding we recently engaged Melbourne cinematographer, Nathan Kaso, to produce a short tilt-shift time-lapse film on the process.
But rather than just spelling out our process, Nathan sought to capture the distinctiveness of a modular project through a unique combination of filming techniques and styles.
After you’ve gone through the process of architecturally designing and building your sustainable modular home with Modscape, we can understand how putting a few holes in your new walls may bring a sense of unrest. Well, rest easy because the latest design trend means putting down your measuring tape, your nails and hammer, and arranging your art without hanging it.
Beginning as a solution for commitment phobes and serial rearrangers alike, ‘unhanging’ art has now become the preference for interior designers the world over. “I tend to lean my art even more than I hang it these days,” says designer Leanne Ford, “this allows for a constant and easy rotation of what is displayed, where and how.” In our experience, there are many inspired ways to set or lean your art (some more child friendly than others), so we’ve taken the time to visually map out some creative ways so you can try the trend at home in your modular house.
Melbourne’s MPavilion is at the centre of our city’s summer events calendar, conceived each year by leading international architects. This year’s pavilion will again be erected in Melbourne’s historic Victoria Gardens location. The MPavilion is a temporary venue that provides a welcomed extra space for events such as public debate, workshops, music and the arts.
The 2017 pavilion design was won by The Office for Metropolitan Architecture, otherwise known as OMA, , Founded by architect Rem Koolhaas in 1975,he Dutch firm based in Rotterdam is responsible for a host of the world’s most impressive modern architectural projects including the Faena District in Miami, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, the Performing Arts Centre in Taipei, as well as Fondazione Prada in Milan.
Gloomy, ominous and mysterious. These are a few of the words that spring to mind when viewing images of the Mask House.
Envisioned by WOJR, the secluded cabin has been conceptualized as a space of refuge and contemplation. A place of seclusion, peace and tranquillity that “removes one from the world of the everyday”.
There’s nothing more relaxing than listening to the rain fall on a tin roof when you’re all warm and cosy inside. Now you can listen to the soothing sound anytime you please thanks to Matthew Mazzotta’s latest project, Cloud House.
The house is built under a permanent cloud and rocking in the chair situated inside activates ‘rain’. The rain then falls onto the metal roof above, producing that warm and pleasant sound. Stay seated and you can relax watching the water drip down from the window lintel, watering edible plants sitting on the sills.
1. Furnish your home with round items
Research by the Harvard Medical School revealed that the type of contour an object possesses has a critical influence on a person’s attitude towards it. The study revealed a distinct affection towards curves, as they convey warmth. People showed less inclination to sharper edged objects, which were perceived as being more threatening and aggressive. Why not furnish your modular home with round items?
At Modscape, we’ve developed an innovative, efficient and environmentally-friendly way to build, via modular homes and prefab homes.
We draw on modular and prefabricated design and building techniques and, with flexible systems, we can create any amount of space you require for your home.
What is a module?
A module is a section of your home. It is made from fully welded structural steel frames and structural insulated panels (SIPs). The modules are combined onsite to make one complete home. Building in modules allows us to easily transport our modular homes in Australia.
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.
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.
Beautiful, innovative and enchanting – no two perspectives are the same when admiring the form of Mexico’s Museo Soumaya.
Designed by FR-EE, the building is home to a private art collection of nearly 70,000 works from the 15th to the mid-20th century.
