In a city where most homes are limited by budget, space, and little things like permitting for installing an indoor lap pool, many fantasy design projects make it no further than the drawing board. But not this fantastic bachelor-pad-of-a-home by Francois de Menil:
Here, anything goes and experimentation is the golden standard. You'll find a lap pool inside, walls of drapery outside, and glass ceilings/floors that let you see between the indoors and out not just through walls but down below and up overhead. Most surprising of all? The fact that all of this is built into an 1880's carriage house!
