»The best surfer in the water is the one who has the most fun,« surfing icon Phil Edwards once said. Slightly modified, it can also be extended to a surfer's accommodation: The best house is the one closest to the ocean. A hot candidate for this would be »Air«: a cabin designed by Yakusha Design for surfers, which could stand on a cliff on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. Or rather above it. Because the concept's all-round glazed living area with clear edges even floats above the cliff - matching the name - and is visually in the air.
For this purpose, the minimalist cabin with its beige furnishings is placed on a central pillar. The construction, which resembles a fin on a surfboard, not only serves the purpose of stability, but also houses the necessary supply lines and electronics. The latter also ensures that the intelligent windows can be made opaque if required - and instead of offering an impressive view, they provide privacy. The only question that remains is how to get the board from the cliff to the shore.
