The Corner office – is an elevator

This is a cool building. Besides all the most modern conveniences, far ahead of the technology of 1939, it has the usual boss’s corner office. What makes that office unique is that the entire room is an elevator. Complete with two working telephones and a working hot and cold sink!

Meet the Baťa Skyscraper in Zlín, Czechia. The office belonged to Jan Antonín Baťa and the room was built by Otis elevator company. Sadly, he never actually got to use the elevator office – but that’s a story for another time. Bonus points for the office still having paternoster elevators.
