Sustainability, design and architecture that inspires.
Last week we received a special visit from an unexpected four-legged friend. Not the usual sales enquirer, but a blue heeler aptly named Bandit who had escaped from home. Our concept designer Prue spotted the curious pup wandering on the side of a busy road as she was driving to work, and managed to pick him up before he got himself into trouble. As soon as he arrived Bandit was an instant hit with the Modscape team. He received the full rock star treatment – including us literally rolling out the carpet (for him to sleep on) and a big bag of Schmackos – until his relieved and grateful owner collected him on her way home from work. It goes without saying that Bandit left a lasting impression on everyone in the Modscape office and we would like to thank him for brightening our day!
Modscape’s prefab homes in Australia were recently featured in the WA Post – specifically our Cottesloe modular house project.
Take a grand three storey exemplar from the art deco period, merge it with a Modscape addition featuring clean lines and geometries, and the result is a redesigned family modular home in South Yarra that sets a new precedent for the future of living.
In today’s saturated market there is an app for just about everything but we’ve taken the guess work out of it for you and found 3 apps likely to be most useful when planning your next prefab homes project.
The beginning of the New Year not only provides a clean slate for sustainable house design ideas and inspiration, but is also the perfect time to reflect on the most innovative building projects of the previous year. The team at Co.Exist have put together their Top 14 Buildings of 2012 and it’s refreshing to see that the criteria for their list is more than just cleverly designed buildings with green options.
This 2-storey holiday modular home is another great example of the flexibility of our modular concept for sustainable house design.
Comprised of 2 ground floor and 2 first floor modules, our Point Lonsdale sustainable house design offers 232sqm of easy living space, including 31sqm of covered decking appointed to take advantage of the property’s beautiful sea views.
Modscape’s prefab homes and modular homes were recently featured in Home Magazine.
Sleek and stylish, the floor plan of this 156sqm family modular home was crafted to meet our client’s brief for simplicity and sustainability.
Offering 3 bedrooms plus study, the prefab home has been naturally zoned by using a central living area to separate the master bedroom and study from the children’s bedrooms.
