Family Home’s Library Slide Lets Kids Slip Right Into a Good Book

Categories: Inspiration

The architects responsible for the Panorama House have made a staircase of epic proportions that acts as a functional centerpiece of the house. The staircase serves as a multifunctional hub, not only providing a way to get from downstairs A to upstairs B, but forming a central element of the house's library, cinema, and play area.

Designed by Moon Hoon, the Panorama House is located in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea, and while the whole building is magnificent, it's the staircase that really stands out. It is gargantuan, with the stairs themselves representing just a small part of the structure (as can be seen in the gallery). Those heading down to the lower floors can take the stairs or use the slide instead, with kids and adults alike invited to experience the latter.

The individual steps provide storage space for books, while the space underneath the staircase itself is used as an office, with plenty of room for a desk and chair. Last but not least in this staircase's box of tricks are the seating areas which the family who reside in the house can use while watching films projected on the back wall.

There's nothing like diving into a good book -- and The Panorama House in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea, designed by Moon Hoon lets the family slip into a story with a library that boasts a multi-level slide. Acting as a unique way to move between the home's multiple levels, the slide is set into terraced shelves. Beautiful, functional, and fun, the intent behind the architecture was to encourage the active young energy of the four children who call The Panorama House, home.
