architect moon hoon designed a house that feels a little like a playscape, and in fact is set up mostly to show off the owner’s collection of toys, mostly miniature robots and figures peeping out of nooks throughout the house.. via designboom.
complete with an internal red slide, ‘conan house’ which translates to ‘toy house’ is located in the popular holiday destination bang-dong, south korea. this playful home by south-korean architect moon hoon, was designed with the client’s inner child in mind. a box-like exterior form, the interior is broken up with small floors, that flow off the spiral staircase and internal void. this central core also functions as an exhibition space with the railing used as a display case for the owner’s toy collection. an avid collector of miniature robots and figures, they feature throughout the house. the jagged floor levels follow the staircase all the way up to the attic, where there is a small red slide that traverses down the void – adding to this building’s sense of fun.
