NYC Home by Turett Collaborative Architects: the element of the playground in the house
Turett Collaborative Architects (TCA) were asked by a NYC East Village client to combine two penthouse condos together in a fun way. How did they manage? By means of a slide! The architects incorporated a stainless tube slide that connects two small apartments together. Two identical units, one atop the other, were combined into a duplex two-bedroom apartment. The slide starts on the top floor near the office, and leads below to both the living and dining areas. You can choose how to get down: by an Italian-made “Rintal” stair, or in a seated position, careening through the new double-height tube. The crisp, clean design evokes simplicity. Turett Collaborative Architect’s concept is stylish, playful. It makes the house a good place for children and those grown-ups with the soul of the children.
