Halfpipe House

The Merello House by WMR architects is a dream come true for skateboarders and surfers. The unique 200-square-foot house was built overlooking the Pacific ocean in Pichilemu, a coastal resort southwest of Santiago in central Chile, and is a few steps to the beach, a true paradise for surfing fanatics. It was built for a Chilean professional surfer, and materializes his dream: the core of the residence is a skateboard halfpipe ramp overlooking the sea! Given its proximity to the water, the pillars in V-shape suspend the entire inner area of ​​the house, protecting it from very high tides or even the risk of tsunamis.

ICICLE ICE BUCKET

Cleverly conceived by designer Rodolfo Dorandi, the ingenious Icicle Ice Bucket solves the annoying and recurring problem of melting ice in the traditional ice bucket.
