Most modern apartment design focuses on minimalism, fancy art, luxurious amenities and costing more than any living space ever should. Although the price is still probably outrageous, architect David Hotson found a way to mix in some whimsy into modern design. This is Skyhouse.
What makes Skyhouse unique isn”t its location or Feng Shui (although both are impressive). It”s the slide inside that pulls it all together.
Skyhouse was created in a NYC apartment space.
It is in a previously unoccupied penthouse.
The interior design is gorgeous.
But also filled with eye-popping color and art.
It”s an impressive house.
But mainly because of the slide.
Instead of taking stairs to get around this massive apartment, you take the slide.
The tunnel starts at the roof…
And it runs all the way to the ground floor.
This fun pad is located in the middle of NYC, in one of the earliest surviving skyscrapers.
Skyhouse”s design mixes fun in with modern ideas. There”s a rock wall, a swing…
The slide isn”t the only awesome part of this apartment.
Living in here would be a child”s dream.
It”s at the summit of the skyscraper.
Making this a rooftop playground.
Every day would be fun if you lived here.
(H/T Where Cool Things Happen)
The price of living in a space like this is probably obscene, so just let Skyhouse be an inspiration to you in your future building and design endeavors. “Fancy” shouldn”t mean “devoid of fun.” Even nice apartments can have a few pieces of playground equipment stuck inside… and they are still incredible. This apartment is to die for, share it with your friends!
