NYC Bachelor Builds A Slide Between His Apartments

So Pimp!

Check out the photos (above) of a totally awesome inter-apartment slide that an NYC man built with the help of Turett Collaborative Architects.

Here's what the architects had to say about their accomplishment:

"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."

"The half-tube stainless steel slide starts on the top floor near the office, and lands below near both the living and dining areas. The sculptural slide is housed in a newly created 18’ tall double-height space, which includes custom designed glass railings. The image of the stainless steel curves in front of the oversized window to the city beyond, to say nothing of the irrepressible glee of grown adults on the slide, is surprisingly poetic; with careful detailing, the playground element is an unexpectedly elegant addition to the space."

"Upon completion, the owner enjoys not only the newly combined total of 2,400 square feet, but also a new game room, office, putting green on the terrace, and of course, the slide."

HOW COOL?!?!?! We want this place for ourselves!

Then again…who wouldn't?

    What does this have to do with celebrity juice and who gives a fuck! I have been in a house with a slide and a fire pole and this is not an original or interesting ideal at all. The article is wrong, this does not make it a duplex, it is just single 2 bedroom apartment that is 2 stories.
