Holy shiat.

Just a quick visit to the local 'Bell and I could spackle those shaft walls and underfloor lighting a nice shade of russet brown...

A true poop chute.

It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the poop again.

Elevator should have a glass ceiling.

csb/ Grandfather and Grandmother's house (they always resisted the term "mansion") had a bathroom right around the corner from the elevator. The ceiling in the bathroom was about 20 feet high and pitch black (the whole house was poorly lit). As a little kid, I couldn't shake the notion that the bathroom was at the bottom of the elevator shaft. I'd sit there, peering up into the darkness, waiting for the elevator to come down and crush me.

Fark that. I don't care if it's transparent aluminum mixed with adamantium, I ain't standing on that.

The glass floor is going to be a cleanup nightmare. Most linoleum floors can absorb and otherwise hide errant splashes of urine, but glass is just going to end up with splotches of dry pee.

We had a restroom in my old office building that had black marble slabs underneath the urinals. They look great, but after a couple years it looked like it was perpetually wet with urine. Standard mopping wouldn't wipe those stains away. We eventually moved from that place.

Quantum Apostrophe

Ugh. Merely being at that height made me feel like everything was swaying. I wasn't getting anywhere near that transparent floor. Of course, the kids playing on it made me feel like a sissy.

You know, I'm not afraid of heights, and I realize that you could park a truck on that glass... but damn if my legs didn't freeze up when I went to step on it. It took a bit of concentration to overcome primal preservation instincts.

-if you can afford that place, you can afford staff to clean the glass floors.
-but, do you want to deal with the headaches of someone having to clean the bottom of the floor/ceiling of the shaft?

Hopefully Mexican penthouses come with instructions on how to flush toilet paper in order to avoid looking like a Home Depot restroom.

falkone32: Ugh. Merely being at that height made me feel like everything was swaying


Here's the real kicker. It's because you were swaying.
I don't know about that building, but many high buildings do have a bit of give. Maybe not even measurable with any sort of meaning, but well within the limits of human perception.

As to the headline, heights make me pucker, not evacuate. I think Subby has issues.

Oh, and even money Mr Genius architect has a camera with an awesome lens down the shaft.

Yeah why don't Mexicans flush their toilet paper? I suppose a septic system doesn't need to be pumped as often if you don't put paper in it but even in the cities they have a little trash can next to the toilet.
 
2012-05-01 04:40:54 AM  
Yeah, yeah, nice infinity mirror floor.

I usually like modern architecture homes like this, but there's something about his style I don't enjoy, and wouldn't want to live in. And I'm not talking about the bathroom as much as the red/white hallway and living space.
 
2012-05-01 04:45:50 AM  
Glass bottom loos, you make the flushing world go round!
 
2012-05-01 05:12:50 AM  
If you REALLY want to mess with their heads, especially during Halloween,
shut off the lights...

Then have someone below in a dark but visible outfit and a mask climb up a rigged latter
while they are taking "their time".

hate it. the reflections aren't a wow thing to me. i know a concept house like this has a look at me i'm special attitude more then its meant to be a home for a typical family but those reflections would drive me bonkers when i have a migraine headache. buy lots of windex.

Well, it's nice to see architecture getting all cute and precious and stupid like all the other arts.

1. Do not warn guests about this.

2. Delay the lighting in the shaft below to come on 10 or 15 seconds after person enters bathroom.

The sewage systems in many countries can't handle paper. It has to be binned then burned or buried. Flushing paper is a luxury available only in rich countries.

Here is a global travel guide for toilet paper use.

Do they give binocular tours from the bottom of the shaft?

If you time looking down right, you can save a fortune on laxatives.


Or, as this is Mexico, just drink the water.

Put some plastic skeletons at the bottom.
 
2012-05-01 09:33:07 AM  
Meh the toilet is attached to the wall, if the floor goes you can dangle your legs till you finish your shiat.

See, the thing that scares me is the lack of redundant safety measures if that floor fails. With a typical floor, you have a bunch of beams spaced about a foot apart with plywood over it (or steel, and reenforced concrete)...even if part of the floor fails..the rest of it won't..

With these glass/plexiglass floors..if it fails...it fails completely; the whole thing, not just one little part...

That's neat but why do they use paper towels instead of the coffee filters that are right next to the coffee maker?
