Can I live here PUHLEASE?!?!

I found this home on Contemporist and had to re-post it here because I am completely in awe of the architecture. It's mind-blowingly AWESOME. And inspiring because Jeff and I are in the process of researching architects for the work we want to do to my ok OUR home and I would love to something even one iota as creative as this. The space was created by Spanish architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez and is the attic space of an early 20th century building in Madrid. It's composed of several different levels and angles yet it's continuous which makes the space appear much larger than it is (it being all white helps too)....and frankly, WAY more interesting. It's just plain NEAT-O.

completely agree with nic, why is the focus on falling over or the possiiblity of hurting yourslef within the space. The design is mind blowing, i'v never seen anything quite like it and such an imaginitive use of a difficult space, he's really used every inch to maximise the usabilty for the home owner. i agree placing a somewhat controversail picture in there not nessesarily great but, on the whole a beautiful and intriging space, would love the chance to walk around it and explore every level a picture is easliy taken down and replaced and bars or glass could be used to prevent any accidents!

Interesting use of space and an ingenious mezannine level although I agree with posters above - there's something a bit sterile about the whole place - throw some colours in there and I'm sold!
