Double Penthouse In NYC Has Steel Slide To Connect It Together
Mar 05, 2012 12:27
Only the mega rich can afford two penthouses together. And also, getting an architect to connect the two homes with a steel slide. The penthouses belong to a 27 year old online pro poker player Phil Galfond. He's moving to Vancouver because of the U.S. Justice Department crackdown on online poker companies, and he'll no longer be staying in his 2,400 square foot apartment with 18 foot tall rooms, four bedrooms and four baths which he paid for $3.2 million in 2008.
He's going to try to flip it for $3.99 million. Turret Collaborative Architects talk about the steel slide:
The half-tube stainless steel slide starts on the top floor near the office, and lands below near both the living and dining areas. The sculptural slide is housed in a newly created 18' tall double-height space, which includes custom designed glass railings. The image of the stainless steel curves in front of the oversized window to the city beyond, to say nothing of the irrepressible glee of grown adults on the slide, is surprisingly poetic; with careful detailing, the playground element is an unexpectedly elegant addition to the space.
That's pretty cool actually. Making it a very unique penthouse from others in NYC. Got enough dough to get your twin penthouses? Check out the pictures in the gallery below:
