The vision of Sri Lankan-based architect and 3D artist Thilina Liyanage, Ocean cabin is (or rather, would be) an oceanfront retreat ‘at the edge of the world’.
Accessed by a stairway wrapped around a massive rock. the cabin itself is an A-Frame supported by stilts featuring a living space with a sleeping mezzanine above. Clearly it’s all about the view and so, true to the axiomatic triplet of real estate, what really matters is location, location, location.
Looking like Tony Stark’s Scandi hideaway (or a gigantic PS5), this brutalist concrete abode perches on a cliff edge overlooking Reynisfjara beach (you’ll recall it from Game Of Thrones’) on the rugged southern coast of Iceland.
A sci-fi film location waiting to happen, if it ever gets built, which it really should.
The front of the eight-wheeler adopts the luxury brand’s signature ‘C-line’- with the drivers cab suspended inside. The prow, redolent of a futuristic steam-engine’s cow-catcher signifies progress and utility though, in fairness, none of this really signifies anything.
Behold: the BMW Garmisch – an automotive concept designed by the legendary Marcello Gandini, who created the Lamborghini Miura, Countach, Lancia Stratos, and the original BMW 5-series.
Launched at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, lost for 50 years and always regarded by BMW as a ‘missing link’ in its design history, the vehicle is being re-released in collaboration with Gandini – hand-built in Turin like its predecessor and with the same angular twin kidney grille, square headlights, louvred c-pillar and honeycombed rear window cover.
Behold; the Technicon Carat 187 superyacht by Technicon Design – an inexplicable (possibly promotional) 57 metre ultra luxury conceptinspired by ‘the world of the red carpet’ with a dramatic pair of articulated stairs reaching out to two matching tenders docked either side.
Behold: the Project Valkyrie Superyacht – just a concept for now but soon to be the world’s biggest luxury yacht.
Designed by Chulhun Park and Palmer Johnson, the massive 229m trimaran vessel, capable of a nippy 25 knots top speed – will accommodate 52 guests and 92 crew with a casino, theatre, mall, restaurants, and exhibition halls.
