The Cliff House is a design response for Emma and David, a couple who approached Modscape to explore design options for a holiday home on an extreme parcel of land they own on the south-west coast of Victoria.

A “hanging arc,” the bridge was to be suspended by 80 high-strength cables and balanced by tensile forces.
