Stairs or Slide? Sweet Ride Connects Two Penthouse Condos

If you are rich enough to afford one penthouse, why not shoot for two? And while you are at it: might as well have fun connecting your new sky-high New York City duplex.

Hence this stunning slide that lets you slip from one floor to the next in (some kind of) style.¬†Turett Collaborative Architects¬†followed their client’s wishes to create an unusual – not to mention high-speed – connection from one floor to the next in this East Village project.

They still have “the option to descend in the usual way on a new Italian-made Rintal stair” but can also traverse the two floors “more speedily, in a seated position, careening through the new double-height atrium” via a stainless steel slide.
