Few places on this planet are quite as sprawlingly void of human life as the Australian Outback. That’s not to say that there’s nothing to see out there – as even the badlands have their sights – but rather that civilization hasn’t yet put the squeeze on nature. And that makes it the perfect place for an off-grid getaway, like Modscape’s Tintaldra House.
This unique home, which basically sits out in the middle of nowhere, boats a single module construction designed around easy maintenance and self-sustainability. For instance, its external walls are built from partially salvaged Zincalume – a sheet steel thats up to four times more corrosion-resistant than its galvanized counterpart. It also features solar panels, a septic tank, and a rainwater collection system. Despite the rugged exterior, the inside of the house is actually quite modern and sleek, with contemporary fittings and fixtures, Oak flooring, and a wood fire heater. And while the property is already spoken for, this is exactly the kind of place we could see ourselves enjoying all year round.
In our latest video feature, HYPEBEAST explores the creative mind of Hagy Belzberg -- Founding Principal Architect of Belzberg Architects, located in Santa Monica, California. The group’s award-winning project resume includes the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust; LACMA’s Art Café, Patina Restaurant and Lobby Café at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the luminescent Gores Group Headquarters in Beverly Hills and The Skyline Residence (Pharrell’s Los Angeles home), amongst other imaginative, shape warping structures. Hagy invites us to physically tour the chimerical, yet very real “Tree Top Residence,” before welcoming us to his office where we learn more about his tight-knit team; leadership style, and the open, stimulating work atmosphere he has created, purposefully bolstered by a view of Santa Monica Beach.
Virtually walk in Hagy’s shoes as an innovative thinker by viewing the video above, and scroll through the gallery below for additional outtakes from Belzberg Architect’s inspiring work.
