perched upon high ground, the ‘panorama house’ by seoul-based architecture practice moon hoon overlooks breathtaking vistas of yangcheong-ri, korea. an angled facade with various sized windows frames the encompassing suburb, fluctuated for diverse perspectives. intended for a family with four children, large by contemporary standards, the home is arranged within a linear footprint with an upper and lower spatial organization. a central multifunctional area features a large wooden staircase which integrates bookshelves, reading nooks, cinema seating oriented towards a projection screen and slide for a quick and fun method maneuvering through the interior. this element brings a dynamic energy to the dwelling, used by both children and adults alike.

the ground level kitchen and dining area are of highest importance to the family, while the tv has been pushed into a small living room. a second floor attic serves as a playroom with the best outlook toward the landscape. traditional heated floors draw inhabitants to sit on the floor, influencing the lower positioning of windows in relation to an individual’s anticipated viewpoints.

  • the large stair at the centre is also a book shelf, if you look at the images on the Moon Hoon website.. with a name like Moon Hoon, you really should expect something interesting at the least.

  • Tish, I grew up with stairs that had no railings, and I have traversed them many times, and even when drunk, hung over, and have not fallen down them once. if your worried about falling use the slide, that is what I would do anyway. have to try and put a slide into one of my projects soon…. awesome, lovce it.

  • Right, Korea not Japan. The Japanese houses on this site are beautiful in general.
