Risky Business

The risk isn’t in the design.

Needless to say the owners of this home don’t have any children and I’m guessing they never get drunk in this apartment either.

    They also definetly don’t want guests to sit in their relax zone (or living room)…

    Betsy calls this the Swedish Staircase of Death. I don’t think I could relax there, of course I have issues with height and an absence of hand rails.

    What The ? I would imagine one must be surefooted and get along really well with any dwellers in the apt to stay alive! Super scarey…great way to keep a roomate or spouse in line…u could just kind of glance in the direction of those steps each time someone got out of line…just a little nod to the steps…and a little statistical info on accidents in the home….would keep everyone honest and acting real nice

    Whoever lives here jacks off to Escher, while his boyfriend reads Rilke to him. Should that have been “whomever”?
