Are you finding your weekend getaways at the Ramada Inn lacking just a little bit in the adrenalin department? Our advice is either fill the hotel pool with barracudas and Jell-O, or spend a night at New Refuge Gervasutti. What’s that? Oh, just a tube that hangs precariously over the edge of a glacier in the Alps.

Italian architects LEAPfactory created this startling piece of shelter off-site and had it flown in via helicopter. The cantilever features a living room, kitchen and dining table, bunk beds, storage closets, integrated computer to keep mountaineers and climbers updated on the weather conditions, and a massive window to soak in the majestic views and sure, serve as another obvious way to observe the weather conditions.
