I could probably fit in 6. It is scary how small apartments can be over here, and how much money those small apartments go for.

There was a cancelled 250m twisting spherical office tower in London that inspired me to do this tower, so maybe you were thinking of that one? and the industrial type grid I added to the top of the tower on one side was loosely inspired by Richard Rogers designs.

Thanks for the comments

... There are the bad proportions between the height of person and the floor's height... Or the person is very high, or the storey is so low....

If that is a 6ft high person the floors would be 10ft.
