Skateboard House

By Luke Young, On May 4, 2012

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. Each space is skateable as the ground becomes the wall then the ceiling in a continuous surface forming a tube of a 10ft radius.

It is the ultimate dream for generations of skateboarders who wanted to bring their practice into their home. 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.
