When the owners carry out simple everyday tasks, such as using the toilet or brushing their teeth, they will be able to look down through the glass floor to the bottom of the shaft.
The luxury penthouse is situated on top of a 1970s Mexican colonial building in Guadalajara, Mxico.
The interior of the home was designed by architects Hernandez Silva Arquitectos.
According to thisiscolossal.com, the architects said: “A characteristic feature of the project is that a volume that was originally intended for a second elevator, and was never installed, becomes a powder room with a glass floor that looks down all the 15 levels.

“The PPDG penthouse is a great versatile modulated space, with great views and all this with the concepts of transparency and the simplicity of materials.”
The structure of the penthouse is based on columns and slabs which mean the architects could take out the walls and create more space with large windows installed.
Spaces in the house can be divided into night and day use.
Moveable screens have been installed to allow the night space to be divided into one or two bedrooms.
