Calvin Klein House (or How Did I Miss This?!)

I'm not quite sure how I missed seeing this during the holiday season, but I sure am kicking myself for doing so. The 5th Avenue Calvin Klein store had this four story "dollhouse" displayed. Designed by Joshua Prince-Ramus of REX Architecture in conjunction with two other firms, it's a four story glory of arylic, steel and spandex(!), complete with a landscaped roof, and features miniatures of the forthcoming 2009 Calvin Klein home furnishings collection. The interiors are what really set my heart palpitating (afterall, it's a cool looking structure, but who wants to live in a house suspended in midair?).

An artist's rendering:

I only wish they had more photos of the interiors and other floors, especially the bedroom. No, no. Who am I kidding - I really wish I had been able to see (and photograph) this house with my own eyes.

  1. Wow ... totally agree with you that the structure although cool is not practical. On the other hand, if they ever 'mass-produce' those mini-furniture pieces ... ummmm, I know I am day-dreaming right now.

  2. Wow! Sleek and futuristic...love what I see of the interiors as well. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Found the bedroom -- take a look http://www.kontaktmag.com/news/madison-avenue-dollhouse/
