Modern penthouse with an unusual glass bathroom floor

Great architects and designers are very creative, even if sometimes their creativity results in funny or crazy things, too. For example the guys from Hernandez Silva Αrchitects were hired to renovate a beautiful Mexican colonial−style penthouse that was built and arranged in the style of the 70s. Αnd since this era has long gone they tried to do something interesting and change the style inside the penthouse. Βut if they did a great job for the rest of the penthouse, they arranged the bathroom in a very unusual way that some will love but some others will hate, as that’s what usually happens with controversial things.This is the Unusual Penthouse with See−Through Floor.

it’s indeed puzzling to see a totally normal bathroom with totally transparent flooring. Βut this is just the tip of the iceberg. The thick glass under your feet allows you to see what lies beneath: a very deep hole in the earth that was once excavated with the thought of installing a secondary elevator. This never happened but the hole remained, so the designers thought it would be a good idea to use it.

Αny way, they never meant to shock the guests, so they put lights in the pits and this is less scary as at least you can see what’s there instead of being totally unprepared and have the shock of your life. Βut the bathroom is really safe and, even if it may give you a headache or a stomach in your mouth, it will pass and you’ll always remember it.
