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.

DUPLI CASA | BY J MAYER H ARCHITECTS

Dupli Casa is an amazing modern luxury villa near Ludwigsburg, Germany by J. Mayer H. Architects. The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site, the upper storey cantilevers exaggerated by the fluid form of the external terrace that washes around the base of the house, extending it out into the landscape. So white and pure, the photos almost look like 3d renderings....
