Green Design: An Alpine Wonderland Victoria Vacation Rental In Australia [Photos]

Buckland01

Modscape is known for its innovative architectural projects that defy widely-known concepts of building and green design with sustainable modular architecture. Located in Bright, Victoria in Australia you’ll find one of their newest projects: Buckland’s Studio 5.

A one-bedroom bed & breakfast retreat, Buckland is designed to allow guests a comfortable indoor retreat with spacious rooms, a fireplace, and an open plan kitchen, living room and dining area that flows into an enormous outdoor deck. From each room, expansive views of the surrounding alpine countryside can be enjoyed, allowing guests to feel like they’re a part of the landscape.

In true Modscape fashion, it’s also eco-friendly, showcasing a mix of old and new with elements of local natural stone, bamboo flooring, plantation timber, recycled steel, a solar-heated water system and Australian corrugated iron — all with a 6-star energy rating.

Explains Modscape managing director Jan Gyrn, “The design forms part of a larger development which involved three additional luxury cabins designed and built on the property as part of the operating accommodation business. The structure is deliberately kept as one simple element so that the focus is on the surrounding landscape including the views of Mount Buffalo.”

Want to experience Buckland for yourself? It’s available for purchase or as a vacation rental starting at $280 per night, based on double occupancy. Click here for details and check out the photos of the rental below.
