Skateboard House

PAS House - Skateboard Dream

PAS House - Skateboard Dream

PAS House, aka the Skateboard House, is a fantasy made real for any teenage skateboarder or former skateboarder.

But you’ve got to grow up and make a lot of money to make your dreams come true if your dream is to have one of the world’s most unusual houses designed for you.

Pierre-Andre Senizergues, formerly a professional skateboarder and now the owner of Etnies, a sportswear company, commissioned architect Francois Perrin to create a house in which every surface is skateable.

PAS House (the name uses the owner-to-be’s initials) is a skatepark of a house.  The walls are curved, the kitchen counters can be skated on, even the furniture is designed to be used by skateboarders.

This summer a full-scale prototype of the inside of the house was on display in Paris.  The skateboard house will be built in Malibu, California.

The Etnies website has amazing videos of skateboarders and cyclists in the PAS House prototype.  A recent New York Times article includes an article with architect Francois Perrin about the skateboard house.

Senizergues’ current house, filled with skateboard art and artifacts, is pretty fabulous as well.  In fact, the LA Times called it the “ultimate skateboarder’s place”.  It’s almost as though Senizergues thought “I’ll show you the ultimate skateboarder’s place” – and commissioned Francois Perrin to create it.
