The Modscape architectural studio has managed to build an off-grid home in just twelve weeks. The home, located in the town of Tintaldra by the southern bank of the Murray River in Victoria, Australia, is a single-module cabin that was assembled in Melbourne before being brought to its final locatoin.

The home was designed to blend effortlessly into its natural landscape rather than standing out too much and distorting the aesthetics of its surroundings. It is also designed to be extremely low maintenance and highly autonomous to suit the needs of owners who will spend extended periods away.

Modscape designed the home with insulated panels, double-glazed windows and a special facade crafted out of a Zincalume skin and covered in recycled corrugated iron.
