A Place Skaters Can Call Home, Literally.

Talented lady architect and founder of Archivirus, Athanasia Psaraki, designed a brilliant space where skaters can call home, literally. The ‘Ramp House’ is a house in Athens, Greece, where the entire living space has been designed with skate-friendliness in mind.

The project came about when a lady client requested for Athanasia to help create a home where she could be able to skate about. Athanasia decided that simply putting a mini ramp inside the house was not going to cut it, so she integrated the idea of the skate ramp and bowl into every aspect of the home’s interior.
