Lollipop House / Moon Hoon


Would you live here? Designed by Seoul-based practice Moon Hoon, this single family residence for Giheung-Gu, is organized around a central stair that branches to seven different living levels.  Wrapped in a colorful facade of metal panels, the coloring choice provides a strong statement for the unusual residence along with conjuring images of a child’s favorite treat.  The clients urged Moon Hoon to explore the idea of multiple living planes which has resulted in a skip floor setup with a study, living area, kitchen and dining area, master bedroom, children’s bedroom, attic playroom and upper level room, stemming from the circulation core.  An atrium runs the height of the house and allows natural light to illuminate the interiors.

    Shocking facade, boring interior. Appropriate? Maybe?

      no, the fact that he divided the house with 7 floors will give bigger space for kids to experience adventurous life.
      that’s what mr.moon was aiming for
