What do you do if the only access to your local oceanfront property is lined with jagged stones and pointy coral? You do what humans do best - make it the way you want it.

Architect, Vicente Guallart, built these hexagonal wooden islands along a rough coast in Spain - allowing local sunbathers and beachgoers to enjoy a “previously nonexistent landform.”

Implications - Homeowners are continually looking for savvy solutions that fix undesirable areas on their property. These wooden islands cover the homeowner's jagged rocks and coral, enabling guests to enjoy the coastline without fear of pain. Creative professionals can take advantage of this opportunity by designing similar problem-solving products for homeowners.
