Pierre-Andre Senizergues's Skateboarding House

On a Roll: A House Built For Skateboarding

I'm excited to present a post from one of my favorite sites, ShelterPop!

After reading about former pro-skater Pierre-André Senizergues's fully-skateable house in the New York Times, we had to take a closer look.

"Skating has a strong relation with architecture," architect Francois Perrin told the Times. "[Skateboarders] adapt themselves to public space and outdoor furniture. A skater, when he goes around the city trying to find the right space and surface, he really looks at architecture with a different eye than someone that's walking around. It's a more fluid approach. So this idea of people skating in a house has been the dream of many generations of skaters."

Dubbed PAS House (after the owner's initials), the residence features a ribbon of continuous surface that integrates much of the furniture, including a sitting area, kitchen and bathroom. Stand-alone objects, such as a dining table, kitchen Island and bed also bear skate-friendly surfaces (and visitors can enter the house via a ramp). A full-scale prototype of the construction was presented at "Public Domaine," an exhibit on skate culture currently on view in Paris; the final version will be built in Malibu, California.

Here, take a gander at some of the house's coolest features . . . if you're so inclined (get it?).
