  • @airborne
    its from Korea……way to read

    Captain Obvious
  • Easily one of the worst designed houses coming out of Japan. Pretentious and 2-dimensional.

    airborne
  • the project is on a verge of kitsch

    internautas
  • by the way, it’s a great design

    tish
  • I know that when there is a stair whitout railing you gonna fall sometimes. Lightning doesn\’t matter, wooden slippery steps do.
    It\’s just like driving a motorbike: there are two sort of bikers, those who already have fallen and those who are going to fall.

    tish
  • Children are not lemmings…If you’re old enough to use stairs then you’re old enough to know that falling off the stairs is going to hurt. As for adults in low light…they should know better to turn the lights on before negotiating stairs without railings.

  • Cool looking, not very practical use of space though. Slide is nice idea but no railing on level to those extra large steps is a no no. not to mention the code violation, what about children\’s safety or even adults in low light.

  • looks fun~!

    relena
  • awesome staircase

    TKH
  • Moon Hoon does it again.
    Great house for kids and those of us who are child like.
