moon hoon - panorama house

Okay, so I'm not crazy about the look of Korean architect Moon Hoon's Panorama House - the exterior is just not my cup of tea. But that's not why I'm featuring it today. Because Panorama House is all about  what's on the inside.

That's right, it's a slide! You all know that slides are a major architectural selling point for me, and this one is particularly lovely with its multi-purpose functionality of bookcase/staircase/slide. According to the architect:
The basic request of upper and lower spatial organization and the shape of the site promted 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…
