The Playbook For The Modern Man

This Man Cave Hides A Skateboarder’s Secret

Full screen

Man cave, meet skate park. Thanks to Inhouse Brand Architects (and some seriously cool parents), a South African teen now has the world’s raddest basement hang space.

Creative Director Aidan Hart and Senior Designer Jenine Bruce designed the ultimate man cave for skateboarders. The space includes a fully functional concrete skate bowl and custom wall art courtesy of South African street artist Jack Fox. It’s the perfect place to live out your Tony Hawk fantasies, but you don’t have to have mastered the nollie hardflip late backside 180 to appreciate this basement chill zone.

Visitors who are not inclined to risk life and limb on a plank of wood can occupy themselves with the vintage pinball machine, the pool table, the workout area, or the fully-stocked snack bar. Design aficionados will also love the room’s most eye-catching feature: the curved timber wave that houses the entertainment system. The wave is lit up from above with LED strips and outfitted with surround sound to complete the epic teen oasis.


It’s official: your parents didn’t love you enough.
