I guess the Panorama House, located in in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea, is one of the most innovative homes I have ever seen, and a little bit child-friendly too.
Architect Moon Hoon designed the 208.14 square meter house with a very adorable wooden slide built directly into a library. What’s more interesting is that the creation of a multi-functional space that includes the large staircase, bookshelves, casual reading space, home cinema, slide and much more.
Panorama House by Moon Hoon:
The basic request of upper and lower spatial organization and the shape of the site prompted a long and tin house with fluctuating facade which would allow for more differentiated view. The key was coming up with a multi-functional space which is a large staircase, bookshelves, casual reading space, home cinema, slide and many more.
The client was very pleased with the design, and the initial design was accepted and finalized almost instantly, only with minor adjustments. The kitchen and dining space is another important space where family gathers to bond. The TV was pushed away to a smaller living room. The attic is where the best view is possible, it is used as a play room for younger kids. The multi-use stair and slice space brings much active energy to the house, not only children, but also grown ups love the slide staircase An action filled playful house for all ages.
