Don't Look Down: Elevator Shaft Powder Room

Home DSGN

I stumbled across this photo last week and was completely awestruck. The powder room in the penthouse of this 1970s Mexican colonial-style building features a glass-bottomed floor over an abandoned 15-story elevator shaft!

Designed by Guadalajara-based studio Hernandez Silva Arquitectos, the Penthouse is located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. The original design of the building included a second elevator which was never installed, and there came the idea for the glass-bottomed bathroom.

See more photos of the powder room and the rest of the Penthouse at Home DSGN. What do you think? Any takers?
