Witness this architectural nightmare and deadly accident waiting to happen: a 37-story, twin tower apartment building that has apartments with swimming pools instead of balconies. Or balconies that are really swimming pools enclosed in glass. Or... whatever. No matter what you want to call this, I would call it crazy.
The Bloomframe "balcony-on-demand" system has been talked about for several years now, but it was only last month that this concept finally transitioned into reality.
Dutch architecture firm Hofman Dujardin has just designed BloomFrame, a window that you can convert into a balcony. It's like having a convertible in your own home. This is a great idea for those of us who like to practice our barbecue grill artistry, but are reluctant to do so within the confines of our apartments.
