PAS House by Francois Perrin and Gil Lebon Delapointe
Francois Perrin of Air Architecture has designed the prototype of PAS House in Malibu California in collaboration with skateboarder and designer Gil Lebon Delapointe. Designed for a former world champion and pro skater, the unique layout of the house allows the user to skateboard any areas and surface, indoor and outdoor. The concept of the design is a ribbon that creates a continuous surface to be skated from the outside to the inside.
The house is divided into three sections; first one includes the living room, dining area and kitchen, second one includes a bedroom and bathroom and the third one a skateboard practice area. Each space is skateable, even the furniture.
Here is some information from the architect, “The PAS house is the first house 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 non Euclidian geometrical space with a continuous surface that creates a new experience of the domestic space, more fluid and dynamic and reflecting 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 celebration of Etnies, their team of pro skaters did a demo session in the prototype.”
