Sitting quietly on the banks of the mighty Murray River in Victoria, Australia, with the Snowy Mountains as a backdrop is this prefabricated, self-sufficient cabin by Modscape. Modscape is a company which specializes in modular and prefabricated architecture. You might have seen their cliffhanging home doing the rounds…
The dwelling serves as a reclusive and intimate base for a client who spends a lot of time overseas. Viewed from the passing road, the structure becomes part of the landscape appearing as small vernacular shed, set against the mountainous backdrop.
Costing AU$192,000 to construct, the project includes a master bedroom, bathroom and a modest open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. In order to operate independently, solar panels are affixed to the cabin’s roof, while septic and rainwater tanks ensure year-round services and minimal environmental impact.
Internal space boasts clean lines and contemporary fittings and fixtures, with oak flooring lining the living space. External decking adjoins the property, providing occupants with panoramic views across the undulating terrain and expanding the internal space into the great outdoors.
