Situated near the famed Punta de Lobos (Wolves Point) surf spot is a dream home for surfers and skaters alike. Built by WMR Architects for a Chilean professional surfer, the 2,100 square foot home overlooks the brilliant Pacific Ocean in the resort town of Pichilemu, located in the central part of the country southwest of the capital city of Santiago.
Just a few sandy steps aways from the brisk waters of the Pacific Ocean, the home is centered around an indoor-outdoor halfpipe overlooking the beach. The entire interior of the home is surrounded by handsome floor to ceiling glass and it’s suspended in a stilt-like manner thanks to the home’s V-shape pillars. Such a design works to protect the home from astronomically high tides and even tsunamis. The home also hosts a massive deck that wraps around the halfpipe and absorbs the bright Chilean sunshine quite well due to its terrace-style roof and sliding glass doors. Now if only WMR could replicate this home for us up here in the Northern Hemisphere. [H/T: Bless This Stuff]
