The Ramphouse Project
The Ramphouse was conceived and designed by Greek architecture firm Archivirus and sits on top of an appartment block in Athens. The Ramphouse melds the idea of a living space built around a skateboard ramp.
Basic house elements such as the fireplace and storage units are hidden inside the ramp forms. I also tried to combine the street aesthetics of the skate scene using concrete and the cozy atmosphere of a house using wood. So concrete walls mold into the floor and then concrete turns into wood to create a ramp partition with the kitchen. In that way, the whole space is in actual motion and somebody can flow from one space to the other, skating or walking.
