Unusual Houses of the World – Skateboarding House

How many times did I tell my son not to climb the walls at home and leave his filthy skateboard outside? Oh, Pierre Andre Senizergues, what have you done?

1000 sqft – 3000 sqft
The PAS House is the project of a private residence, to be built in Malibu, California.
In this house you will be able to skateboard any areas and surfaces, Indoor and Outdoor.
The client and visionary of the project is Pierre Andre Senizergues (PAS), a former World champion and Pro Skater, Founder and Owner of Sole Technology,
a Socal based Skateboard footwear and apparel Company leader in the Action sport industry with brands like Etnies, Emerica, Es and Altamont.

The project to be located in a site overlooking the Pacific at the top of the Malibu hills, was developed by the skateboarder and designer Gil Lebon Delapointe and the LA based architect, Francois Perrin.
The concept of the house is a ribbon that creates a continuous surface to be skated from the Outside to the Inside. The house is divided into three separate spaces.
The first one includes the living room, dining area and kitchen, the second one includes a bedroom and bathroom and the third one a skateboard practice area.

Each space is skateable as the ground becomes the wall then the ceiling in a continuous surface forming a tube of a 10ft radius.
The furniture is also skateable, whether it is integrated in the curve like the sitting area, the kitchen or the bathroom or just as standing object like the dining table, the kitchen Island or the bed.
Closets and drawers could be integrated in the curve too.
The PAS house is the first house designed to be entirely used for skateboarding as well as being a traditional dwelling.
It is the ultimate dream for generations of skateboarders who wanted to bring their practice into their home.

In the practice of Architecture, it also represents a groundbreaking in the construction of a new geometrical space leaving the traditional Euclidian
space represented by the square angle, the floor, wall and ceiling for a continuous surface that creates a new experience of the domestic space,
more fluid and dynamic at the image of our 21st century lifestyle.
A model of the project and a full scale prototype of the Living area was recently presented in Paris for the exhibition Public Domaine/Skateboard Culture at la Gaite Lyrique,
a new museum directed by the City of Paris.
For the 25th birthday of Etnies, their team of pro skaters did a demo session in the prototype.
