Maria Zacharopoulou commissioned Archivirus Architecture and Design to transform her Athens home into a "skatable habitat." The result is the stunning Ramp House. From AR Plus (snips of photos by Theo Vranas):
The architect wanted the ‘skateboarding’ element to be more than simply putting a mini ramp in the living room. Rather, the ramp, the bowl and all the interpretations of those terms would actually become the building elements for this space. It is intended to be a ‘ramp house’ and not a ‘house with a ramp’. Straight lines are curved and the flat surface becomes a ramp or a bowl. Basic house elements such as the fireplace and storage units are hidden inside the ramp forms.The Ramp House (Thanks, Dave Gill!)
