Admittedly, I've had a loft space that we left open in order to skateboard and ride bikes in. It was extra awesome and I highly suggest it if you ever get the chance. That said, this house takes that idea to the extreme as almost every surface was meant to do some sort of skate trick on or over.

We ran across this skateboard friendly home over at Shelterpop. They've taken a closer look at the home that architect Francois Perrin built. It was intended for a pro skateboarder, so it's not really for your average family.

The question is, would you like it to be? Sure you'd spend a great deal of time sweeping, but if you had the space would you like something like this for your home? It's beautiful in that clean and modern sort of way, but leaves some parts feeling a little cold and uninhabited. Share your thoughts on the space below and make sure to hop over to Shelterpop to see more of this unique space.
