April 2, 2009 For skating lovers who heard the phrase ‘don’t you dare skate in the house’ one too many times as a kid, this might just be the dream home you’ve always wanted. The unique dwelling is described as having a ‘curved form interior’ (otherwise known as a ramp), but it's not just 'a house with a ramp in it'. Archivirus Architecture and Design's creation sets out to deliver a completely 'skatable habitat' for the client (which is not actually Tony Hawk -he has his half-pipe built in the backyard) with smooth concrete and curved spaces to enhance the idea of motion.

Located in Athens, Greece, the Ramp House is actually a roof addition to an existing three-storey building that includes a balcony, also with a ramp on it (good idea or bad idea?). The main ramp is in the living room, with a partition to the kitchen. It is a mixture of wood and concrete, with storage units and a fireplace built into the ramp forms.
