    Default A Showpiece of Communal Living in Berlin


    Laure Joliet for The New York Times
    Christoph Roedig and Uli Schop live in a duplex in the 10-unit co-op building they designed in Berlin’s Mitte neighborhood. The plot the building stands on, which was nearly empty until the middle of the last decade, cost about $360,000. Construction was completed in 2005 and cost an additional $1.1 million.

    ^lol. I'm the kind of spaz who would probably try to climb up them and hang on them from the wrong side, and still fall to my death down or up them using them the right way.

    Hate it. Nothing inviting about it at all.

    ^This. Ick. What happens when your 450lb aunt visits for the holidays? Won't those free-standing steps at least droop?

    They're death stairs, but they're awesome death stairs!
