This has absolutely nothing to do with surfing but I thought it was cool enough to put up on the site. Pierre-Andre Senizergues, the owner of SoleÂ Technology, the company that owns Etnies, Emerica,Â Ã©S, Altamont, and a few other brands is doing something he’s probably been dreaming about since he was a grom,Â having a house built that is completely skateable, inside and out.
The house which is still a prototype is being designed by architectÂ Francois Perrin and will be built in Malibu, California.Â Perrin has experience building skateparks but this is his first attempt at merging a skate park and a functional home. The video and photos below give you a better idea of what the house is all about. My guess is that friends of Pierre-Andre will be visiting him a lot more once the house is built.
Also, the New York Times has an interview with Francois Perrin which you can read at nytimes.com.
