Movie: Skyhouse by David Hotson and Ghislaine Viñas
This movie tours the interior of New York penthouse apartment Skyhouse, which contains a quadruple-height living room, columns with climbing treads and a tubular steel slide that plunges down from the attic.
Architect David Hotson and interior designer Ghislaine Viñas collaborated on the renovation, which involved restructuring the uppermost storeys of a late nineteenth century tower in lower Manhattan to accommodate a family residence.
The movie shows how the rooms of the apartment are connected to one another with indoor balconies and a faceted stairwell, but that residents can also climb up one of the existing steel columns or glide down using the two-stage slide.
The apartment was completed earlier this year - see more images of Skyhouse in our earlier story or see more buildings with indoor slides.
The movie was produced by Build Pictures. Still photography is by David Hotson.
