New York-based architect David Hotson, in collaboration with designer Ghislaine Viñas, has completed an ambitious architectural project known as SkyHouse that features a wonderful blend of modernity and everlasting childhood. The four-story complex, atop a Manhattan skyscraper, is filled with eye-catching geometric, contemporary design but it is the inclusion of glass bridges, adventurous wall climbing fixtures, and especially a playful slide that sets it apart from other living spaces.

Inspired by artist Carsten Höller’s Test Site installation at London’s Tate Modern in 2006, Hotson incorporated a similar slide in SkyHouse that allows its residents to swoop down from floor-to-floor. The mirror polished stainless steel tube invites anyone with a playful spirit to reach in through the circular entrance and spiral down through the unique apartment.
