The most RAD idea of a house. Sole technology boss Pierre-Andre Senizergues and his architect friend Francois Perrin make a big dream come possible. The PAS House is a glimpse into the future that shows what powerful influence skateboarding can have on a dwelling place. Not only the walls but also the furniture are skateable! The house is the first house to be designed entirely for skateboarding and dwelling, with wall and ceilings for a continuous surface that creates a dynamic and fluid experience. I love it.
