Are we in Munchkinland? Lollipop house, South Korea
Seoul-based architectural practice, Moon Hoon, have designed the Lollipop House project. completed in 2011, the contemporary property evokes memories of children’s sweets. The house can be found in Cheongdeok-dong, Giheung-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.
This uber cool home belongs to a young a couple with one child. In their brief they requested that they wanted a unique house made up of large steps that kept increasing as part of the interior design.
According to the architects: “The initial idea of house with steps turned into a practical version of skip floor format, with a small atrium in the middle. The half basement is used as a study followed by living room, kitchen/dinning, master bed, child’s room, attic for the child and attic AV room.
“The client was very happy when the design was finished. They had a seven-storey building (half floor difference). Inevitably, the house had a dynamic quality, like that of a giant stairwell. The large void in the middle accentuated it even further. The spiraling energy created within was an inspiration for the exterior. The swirling energy was translated into a flat dimension, thus the nickname lollipop house was born.”
The design of Lollipop House brings back memories of children’s candy that is featured in The Wizard of Oz and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. If you stare long enough you could think you were in Munchkinland.
