Live Modern: Lollipop House
Architecture & Interiors
We all want to live in a home that’s unique. That’s one-of-a-kind. That feels like our personality. That shows the world how we’re different–we’re not like everyone else living in normal, everyday architecture. More and more you’re seeing folks spending that extra dollar, that extra effort, to create a home rich in meaning. It’s not everyday you find a home where they were able to do it so well, or so affordably, as architect Moon Hoon were able to do for the Lollipop House in Giheung-gu, in the Republic of Korea.
“A young couple with a beautiful daughter visited my office one day. They wanted a unique house. Something that they have not seen…We talked about a house that is made of large steps that keeps on rising. We also explored spirals. All these talks stopped suddenly when we realized that the client had a tight budget. The initial idea of house with steps turned into a practical version of skip floor format, with a small atrium in the middle.”
