Local sporting pavilions are an invaluable resource to the community – a place to socialize and connect with each other in a safe and welcoming environment. Many councils and government bodies are recognizing that integrated, state-of-the-art facilities incorporating shared meeting and recreational spaces can support a more active, resilient and connected community. With the increasing number of female participants in sports, flexible multi-purpose facilities not only support local clubs as their numbers increase and requirements shift, but offer non-sporting community [...]

As the rate of participation in local sport grows, so too has the demand for better and expanded facilities to cater for players, umpires and visiting teams. To support this growth, Modscape works collaboratively with local councils and sporting clubs to create inclusive facilities that provide comfortable, private and safe environments for males and females.

Modern Prefab Classrooms – a Far Cry from the Old ‘Portables’

2019-03-28T16:29:54+00:00 March 26th, 2019|Architecture, Design, Modscape, Projects|

Whether you call them portables, demountables or relocatable classrooms, the temporary fix for expanding schools in times gone by has left a legacy of sad and sorry structures throughout Australia. Bearing little resemblance to the 21st century education settings we aspire to offer our children, the classrooms often fill parents with memories of freezing winters, boiling summers and weaving through cramped, monotone spaces. Indeed, many portables have been in schools for over twenty years – well beyond their life expectancy [...]

With a country surrounded by water, it’s no wonder that the great Australian dream of house ownership can quickly extend to thoughts of a beach house. And with endless childhood memories of summers spent by the beach – swimming, sunbaking and playing sports – many of us are prone to imagine our future weekends and holidays lazing by the beach with family and friends. But while the dream has an enduring allure, it is wise to remember that planning the [...]

2019-02-25T09:07:17+00:00 February 21st, 2019|Architecture, Modscape, Projects, Sustainability|

Healthy assets - healthy people When we visit a hospital as a patient the last thing we tend to think of is how the hospital’s assets are planned and managed, and what effect this might have on us. Instead, we simply rely on the system to work and that the health professionals who care for us have the facilities and equipment they require. What we don’t often think about is that healthy asset management is critical to patient outcomes, and [...]

From windy ocean roads to  sandy beaches,  picturesque mountains and plentiful agricultural plains, the benefits of modular – the control, predictability and accessibility – is ideally suited to remote, complex or regional sites. Take our Kimberley project in Western Australia for example. As one of our first projects, completed over 11 years ago for the managers of the Yougawalla Cattle Station, the modular home/school/workers accommodation sits amongst millions of acres in the heart of one of Australia’s harshest and remote [...]
