One of the biggest gripes most skateboarders have is that the sport cannot be pursued on a whim. Sure you can skateboard on your sidewalk or down a neighborhood hill, but to perform fun tricks one has to visit a special park. Maybe that's why former professional skateboarder, Pierre-Andre Senizergue is building himself a house, that is 100% skateable.

The 2,200 sq.ft. home that is being constructed at the top of Malibu's Las Flores Canyon, features curved tube-like walls with a 10-feet radius - Which means, that Pierre can skate all around, even on the ceiling, if he so desires.

To ensure a smooth skateable path, all the rooms are connected in a ribbon like fashion so that the French athlete can traverse the entire house on his board. If that's not impressive enough, even the furniture and kitchen appliances are designed to be skateable.

While the house dubbed PAS (Pierre's initials), will not be ready until next year, a full-scale model of its 753.5 sq.ft. living room is currently on display at the La Gaite Lyrique in Parisas part of their summer exhibition on Skateboard culture. As you can see from the video, the PAS is going to be everything they promised and more! Did someone say lucky?
