If you can afford an appartment with 9 toilets, you should afford paying someone to do that.

When you have an apartment like that you must have a maid.And if you dont, i'm sure the building provides maid service, among other things.

^ yeah I know, but paying someone to maintain stuff you don't really use, let alone enjoy, just goes against my senses.

I agree and that's why I think there is a maximum limit to the floor size I would have in an apartment.

I saw a trailer in the cinema the other day about a future earth where the happy few live in a space station orbiting Earth with us low lives still on the planet. Somehow Some of these new NY resiscrapers reminds me of that space station.

I really expected better from the famous One57.I mean for such a "luxurious" building its still far from the great prewar coops.The rooms are alot smaller.But i guess for some its the ideal.
The views are great btw

Those huge prewars are literally stacked mansions,not your typical apartments. They are viewed (by the lucky few occupying them) as urban mansions,not some simple apartment.The floor area is very large but the rooms also are enourmous.I mean a 800 SF living room is big even in Bel Air......

The ideal apartment if you ask me would be the Bruce Wayne's Penthouse in The Dark Knight

A bit too ominous and dark. Just like his personality.

These floorplans are just like 2 apartments fused together, the 2nd most of all.

I made a floor plan of my 72 m2 apartment which I'm about to put up for sale. It's far from ideal, a lot of space is lost because of the corridor. They could have situated the bathroom, toilet and laundry/central heating room on the wall to the left and then the entrance would be on the right of the bathroom adding a big chunk of the corridor to the living room.

But it is a nice apartment, lived here happily for 10 years. Now it's time to move on to a house exactly twice the size of this apartment.


edit: I made a quick and dirty photoshop of how the same floor space would have a much better floor plan.
