Wind rider for surfers: Yakusha Design »Air«

If you can't ride waves, then at least you should see the waves you could surf on. And besides, riding on the edge of a cliff. At least that's what the surfer accommodation »Air«, designed by Yakusha Design, looks like.

»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.
