Tintaldra by Modscape
- Caroline Kurze
Modscape created a dwelling, situated on a vast property on the southern banks of the Murray River in Tintaldra, offering a secluded yet intimate existence from which the surrounding environment can be observed and revered.
The house consists of a single-module cabin featuring a cladding system that was subsequently developed to create a salvaged, shed-like exterior, consisting of a base layer of new zincalume and a top layer of recycled zincalume which was applied for effect. As a stark contrast, the interior floorplan is crisp white with clean lines and contemporary fittings and fixtures while a wood fire heater invites the outdoors in. Minimalistic in layout, the cabin provides all the amenities needed for living including a master bedroom, bathroom and modest open plan kitchen/living/dining area, while solar panels, a septic tank and a rainwater tank ensures year-round services and minimal environmental impact.
