A clear bathroom floor and a view 15 floors down

When architects Hernandez Silva Arquitectos were commissioned to build a contemporary penthouse on top of an old building, the architects decided to incorporate a second elevator shaft that was never used by installing a clear floor over top and using the space for the bathroom.

The contemporary home is situated on top of a '70s Mexican colonial building in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. The elevator shaft is 15 floors down.
