Chilean beachfront home has a halfpipe in the middle of it

Loading...

WMR Architects, a Chilean architecture company, has built a home that Bam Margera would be proud of.

Margera, of “Viva La Bam” fame, notoriously built a skatepark in his parents home when they were gone on vacation. The architects at WMR have gone a step above by constructing Casa Merello, a magnificent beachfront property with a halfpipe smack dab in the middle of it.

The home would be a beauty even without the skateboarders’ paradise, but with it the home turns into a boarder and surfers dream.

It is located on the Pacific Ocean in the resort town of Pichilemu, which is located in the central part of the country southwest of the capital city of Santiago.

Casa Merello is lifted with V-shaped pillars which protects it from high tides and other natural occurrences that happen when living so close to the ocean.

The entire home has floor to ceiling glass enabling it to have panoramic views of the ocean and other surroundings.
