Brooklyn’s Old Clock Tower Transformed Into Penthouse

An iconic clock tower which stands a top One Main Street in New York was recently renovated and transformed in a million-dollar modern penthouse. Brooklyn’s Clock Tower is located in the trendy DUMBO (down under the Manhattan bridge overpass) neighborhood. Originally built by Cardboard manufacturers the building is part of an old industrial building and was transformed into a penthouse by David Walentas, the man behind the DUMBO project.

The magnificent building is approx. 6,813 square feet penthouse and showcases a 360 degree view of the city which overlooks the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhatten. The penthouse is a three story building and has 3 giant clocks installed in 14 foot high round windows in each wall.

The penthouse of the Clock Tower building entered the market in 2009 as the most expensive condo in Brooklyn, listed for $25 million – till then, the most expensive apartment on record had cost a mere $11 million. The realtors, however, have been unsuccessful in selling the Clock Tower penthouse, and it’s now down to $18 million. Have you got that amount of cash to spare? Most of us can only dream!

Italian company 14 Ora Italiana has a collection of wood grain porcelain tiles that were inspired by the works of Andy Warhol. The Uonuon line comes in fourteen colors that are featured on this colorful and fun staircase.


“Coat storage is often an eyesore, but not with this understairs unit. The well-engineered sliding cupboard can use hooks or clothes rails according to preference.” (Designed by Deriba Furniture)

Sensualscaping Stairs

“The stair is a continuation and intensification of the simple graphic skirting board lines that trace their way through the house. As they turn the corner into the stair void, they expand like a genie released from a lamp, curling and separating and bifurcating from the wall to form the delicate edge of the stair treads, lifting into the air to rise as the veil of the balustrade.” (Designed by Atmos Studio)


Staircase designed for a private residence in Stockholm, Sweden in 2006 by Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom. (Designed by TAF arkitektkontor)

Flat F.M

These floating stairs link the living room to the private space reserved for the owner under the rooftops. (Designed by ecole)

“The Rainbow House is a magical oasis on a busy road filled with people and noise. When you step through its front door, you enter a parallel universe of fun, colour, movement and sensuality, leaving the ordinary world far behind.” (Designed by Ab Rogers)

Emmental Stairs

“The Emmental stairs was designed for a young creative family with an equisite design taste and an eye for details and their two children. They were just starting the refurbishment of their apartment and wanted interior stairs that would harmonize with the historic ambiance of the apartment and their aesthetic requirements, but also add an extra touch to their living space.” (Designed by Biljana Jovanović)

Blood Vessel Stairs

“The home may be a machine for living, but it’s also an mechanical extension of the body.” (Designed by DMVA Architecten)

Steel Stair Mesh at Villa La Roche

New York University Stairs

“The complete interior renovation of the 1890 corner building at 5 Washington Place for the consolidation of the New York University Department of Philosophy organizes the new spaces around light and phenomenal properties of materials. A new stair shaft below a new skylight joins the 6-level building vertically with a shifting porosity of light and shadow that change seasonally. Prismatic film was installed on the south-facing stairwell windows which occasionally break the sunlight into a prismatic rainbow.” (Designed by Steven Holl Architects)

Bookcase Staircase

“Limited by space, we melded the idea of a staircase with our client’s desire for a library to form a ‘library staircase’ in which English oak stair treads and shelves are both completely lined with books.” (Designed by Levitate Architects)

Ribbon Staircase

“The concept of a delicate rippling ribbon was chosen in view of the exposed position of the staircase in the main living area of the house. The staircase is constructed from 10mm thick sheet metal. Pairs of adjoining steps connected with an oblique external side joist form a bracket anchored in the wall. Each of the brackets is constructed as a rigid frame. The higher steps bear mainly drawing forces, while pressure is transmitted through the lower steps.” (Designed by HSH Architects)

Godzilla Stairs

“The ambiguous spatial limits, along with the light streaming in through the hidden windows, lends the place a feeling of endlessness.” (Designed by Chae-Pereira Architects)

Stairs Made From Skateboard Decks

“This is a set of steps I made for our skateboard school. The aluminium beam is a solid billet of aluminium and the decks were custom made with concave only on one edge. You should see the look on our students faces when they make the treck to the basement.” (link)

Staircase in Northampton

Sculptural staircase with glass and timber details. (Designed by Philip Watts)

Loft F27

“The concept “Black or White“ is the underlying idea of a radical new design for an urban apartment in the north of Graz. Modern architecture has transformed a two-storey apartment built in the 1990s into a multi-functional loft serving as home and office. Whereas the owners see the apartment as the perfect fusion of functional and extravagant design, some visitors tend to regard it as too austere.” [2] (Designed by Schlosser und Partner)

Storage Stairs

Creative way to use space under your stairs.(Designer: unknown)

Staircase Slide Combo

“At the request of his children, London architect Alex Michaelis installed a slide next to the staircase in their new eco-friendly dream home.” [3] (Designed by Alex Michaelis)

National Olympic Commettee House

“This work represents the idea of dynamics in sport with the abstract compositions of the staircase and the reception table. The first object you encounter is the introverted desk with its never-ending fissure, and then you meet the extroverted staircase – like the open path to Olympus, where the summit meets its own reflection, inferring that striving never ends, that there is no limit to human achievement.” (Designed by Architects of Invention)

Extreme Staircase

Designed by Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann

Timber Stripes

“Great stair for the School of Arts comprised of laminated timber. Some of the timber strips have been painted adding extra dynamics.” (Designed by Tetrarc)

Spiral Staircase

“From above and below, the wood grain provides a contrasting and changing set of fine-grain textures set against the regular rhythms of the overall stair design.” [4] (Designed by Patrick Jouin)

30 Awesome and Innovative Bookshelf Designs

When walking to a room full of books most of us find that impressive, books contain worlds of knowledge and story telling. But sometimes Bookshelf Designs can take your attention over the books, if they’re designed with a unique and innovative way.

It may be fitted with glass doors.  A bookcase consists of a unit including two or more shelves which may not all be used to contain books or other printed materials. Shelves may be fixed or adjustable to different positions in the case. In rooms entirely devoted to the storage of books they may be permanently fixed to the walls and/or floor.
