Elevators are passe – Residents can ski out of their front doors in Kazakhastan

If stairs and elevators are too passé for you, head to Kazakhstan where some genius architects have designed a building with a ski slope that allows you to ski or snowboard out to street level. Named Slalom house, the ambitious building is set to have a roughly spiral shape with a roof that slopes downwards to transport skiers to the ground. The project is led by architect Shokhan Mataibekov.

The 21 floor building is set to house shops on the ground floor and 421 flats on the upper floors. Despite the temperature in winter sinking to minus 20 degrees Celsius, the lack of ski slopes nearby mean that this building will be a welcome addition to the city of Astana. Additionally the ramp will supposedly be created from Snowflex, a synthetic material that simulates snow meaning that ski loving citizens won’t even have to wait for winter to enjoy the slope.
