HOUSE LOVE: SKYHOUSE

Check out this crazy home that I found on Domaine Home. Interior designer, Ghislaine Viñas designed this whimsical 4 story penthouse in Manhattan with architect, David Hotson. This house is like nothing I've ever seen before. All I can think of to describe it, is a jungle gym for adults. It has climbing walls, a swing, a huge tubular mirrored slide and glass floors. The photos are great, but the house is so trippy, I can't even tell what I'm looking at.

This living area is just amazing. It screams cozy-comfort - that huge plush area rug, the extra deep sectional, the tufted sofa and the very large square coffee table - my God! I could hang out in there all day/night long. Not to mention the fabulous windows and their ridiculous view. The furniture layout is so great for entertaining.

There - in the above picture - is an example of one of the climbing walls. See the green pegs on one of the support beams?Again, that view.......

They can do some swinging while they wait for dinner to be ready...

This is the slide's exit spot. It spits you out right onto the main-living floor of the house. All the images above this, of the kitchen, dining and living areas, are all on this floor.

The bedrooms are on the upper levels. I love all the artwork in the house.They call this area "the nest". There's another climbing wall.

The beginning of the slide is above this bedroom (below).After I saw this in Domaine Home, I wanted to see if I could find the floor plans. I needed to know how all the rooms were laid out and especially how that huge slide traveled through the space. Well, I found something better than plans. This video shows and explains the layout of the whole apartment. It's fabulous!
