Glass Floor Bathroom Over 15 Story Elevator Shaft

Guadalajara-based studio Hernandez Silva Arquitectos has recently designed the new interior of a penthouse situated on top of a 70′s Mexican colonial building in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. Its glass floor bathroom set atop an unused 15 story lift shaft has become an internet sensation. Some commenters said that ‘this bathroom will literally scare the sh*t out of you.”[1]

“A characteristic feature of the project is that a volume that was originally intended for a second elevator and was never installed becomes a powder room with a glass floor that looks down all the 15 levels, the PPDG penthouse is a great versatile modulated space, with great views all this with the concepts of transparency and the simplicity of materials.” [2]

    Very cool use of an otherwise useless elevator shaft. Must feel like the old castles when people used this kind of indoor plumbing as an indoor outhouse. Would love to have one. May casue a little vertigo, however.
