seoul-based practice moon hoon has recently completed ‘lollipop house’, a single family dwelling in giheung-gu, korea. evoking the imagery of a child’s candy with alternating pink and white rings, this rounded and segmented elevation conceals seven storeys of internal living spaces. beginning with input from the inhabitants, the design initiated with explorations of rising stairs and spirals. due to budget limitations, the ideas were simplified into a practical skip floor format which wrap around an interior void which forms an atrium.

 

accessed from the central stair, each space is naturally illuminated with a series of skylights, including the lowest level, a half-basement which contains the study. strung together with the continuous vertical circulation, the successive rooms include a living area, kitchen and dining area, master bedroom, children’s bedroom, attic playroom and upper level AV room. the initial desired energy was then transferred to the exterior with the bod facade of swirling metal panels, leading to the name of the project.

  • i wouldn’t like to leave the house and forget something I need in the bedroom.

  • Well, obviously the people who live in this house value a visual serenity. How could they not consider that their neighbors might find that desirable as well.

  • looks like a permanent termite tenting job

  • Go figure international sensibilities. The outside doesn’t relate at all to it’s surroundings. In fact, it looks like a pop-up circus landed in town. On the other hand, the interior is not bad if you don’t mind living on a staircase.
