nyc condo with a steel slide


Well you guys, I've officially added "slides" as one of my blog labels. There's simply no denying the fact that indoor slides are amazing, and I just can't get enough. This particular slide was created by Turett Collaborative Architects for a New York City, East Village condo:
TCA has had a lot of experience connecting smaller apartments together into a seamless whole, but this adventurous client requested something we'd never seen before. In a newly constructed multi-residential development, in the East Village of NYC, TCA had the opportunity to meet a unique client's desire to combine two penthouse condos... with a helical slide. In this transformation, two identical 1-bedroom units, one atop the other, were combined into a duplex 2-bedroom home with the option to descend in the usual way on a new Italian-made "Rintal" stair, or more speedily, in a seated position, careening through the new double-height atrium.
