I regularly am impressed by people who have commited their lives to their passions and in doing so have birthed some of the most innovative and creative undertakings in those respective passions. Pierre Andre Senizergues is one of these characters. He is a former freestyle skateboarder that I used to read about in magazines many years ago when I was immersed in the sport. Since then Pierre Andre has created a skate empire. Most know of his shoe brand Etnies, but that brand is just the tip of the iceberg. He has contributed so much to the sport that politicians in California praise him. Now he is making another creative leap for the sport by merging it with architecture.
The Pierre Andre Senizergues (PAS) House Pierre is the ultimate dream for generations of skateboarders who wanted to bring their practice into their home. The PAS House is the project of a private residence, to be built in Malibu, California. In this house you will be able to skate any areas and surfaces, indoor and outdoor. 
The PAS house is the first house designed to be entirely used for skateboarding as well as being a traditional dwelling. The prototype of PAS House was recently presented at La Gaite Lyrique museum in Paris.

The house is divided into three separate spaces. The first one includes the living room, dining area and kitchen, the second one includes a bedroom and bathroom and the third one is a skateboard practice area.  The furniture is also skateable, whether it is integrated in the curve like the sitting area, the kitchen or the bathroom or just as a standing object like the dining table, the kitchen Island or the bed.

These types of initiatives that are truly creative and will inspire others in very different fields would never be possible if those leading them aren’t completely immersed in their passion. Only then can you see connections that others don’t, only then can you push the boundaries that you know exist, only then can you have the bravery to try it because you long for great fulfillment in the passion that has defined your life. Absolutely beautiful.
