“Our skateboard culture, we’ve been making shoes for more than 25 years, we’ve been making music, we’ve been making clothes, movies, all about skateboarding, but there is no physical home, no interior, that represents skateboard culture. It had to be done, and for 10 years, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to interpret architecture in a way that envisions skateboarding first, not an afterthought. It’s not just about slapping plywood on the walls. I wanted to envision a structure that was skateboarding first, and then a house that became part of that environment.”
