(Please do not click through; this web site does one of those horrible pop-up "CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE!!eleven" things and do not deserve your ad impressions. Also there's no additional info. Designer's web site is even more worthless.)
This penthouse in Guadalajara, Mexico, designed by Hernandez Silva, features a dizzying bathroom with a glass floor over an abandoned elevator shaft with a 15-floor drop.
How long until the underside is obscured by bugs, cobwebs, bats?
Or, if you're this guy, perhaps you can afford spelunking, poop-dodging window washers?
well presumably those lightbulbs won't last forever...
My favorite thing to do to the "Click to Subscribe" shields is to right click on them, "Inspect Element", and delete them directly from the DOM.
If it were mine, I'd never use it out of fear that the floor would shatter and I'd have to be rescued by firemen while half naked and clinging for dear life to the toilet. Also, I disagree. The most awesome thing to do would be to put mirrors on the ceiling and down the bottom of the shaft to make it so you could watch your poop descend in to infinity.

or use portals so that it actually did!

It's also a little disturbing that the 1980's era elevator shaft looks like it was built in the 15th century.
Hola, Mexico! 16th Century monks TOTALLY built that shaft, atop the ancient Aztec pyramid where Huichol were sacrified for the gods of GOLD.
I'm just disappointed that it's not a functional elevator shaft.
Also, I think AdBlockPlus blocks whatever subscription popup you mentioned.
Also, Ghostery blocks about a dozen different trackers.
Total design fail not having the waste go down the shaft. But on the other hand, you can watch It Putting The Lotion On while going.
Oh look, an artist's website that's utterly shit. I am so surprised.
That'd be more fun if the only way in or out was by an adjacent, still functioning elevator.
