Purple Hill House by Iroje KHM Architects

Architecture & Interiors

“Angles is not something this house is lacking in.” “Sheesh, leave some angles for the rest of us!” “If a transformer and the mom from Beetlejuice built a home together, it’d look like this.” These are all possible first sentences we wanted to start this post about the Purple Hill House by Iroje KHM Architects out with. When a home’s got that many possibilities for awe and mockery, you know you’re in for something good.

As you can see that the designers behind this home in Youngin, Gyeounggi-do, South Korea weren’t interested in creating a home with any sort of semblance to traditional designs. We’re okay with that. Even that stove is kind of crazy looking! The point is all these wild angles definitely give a grandiose appearance to the home, making it seem big, powerful and kind of like where the Wizard of Oz might live.

 What do you think about all these crazy angles?!

    Wow, looks like a crazy version of CTU on 24. XD Not sure I’d want to live there though… not very inviting…

      It definitely has a very certain aesthetic that could probably only be enjoyed by a certain type of person!

        I’d like to see some furniture inside. It might be cool as a setting in a movie!

        That is true! I’m sure furniture would have a big impact on the look inside this place.

    Just because you CAN do something doesn’t mean you should. But it probably meets the needs of whoever paid for all those expensive angles. More power to him/her, and the exterior colors are very nice. The inside could be a very stimulating workplace, but this isn’t where I’d choose to relax and sleep.

      Extraordinarily accurate comment. I bet it is really engaging for folks in a motivating, energetic sort of way, but you’re right: I wouldn’t want to sleep or relax in here, either!
