Evoking the imagery of a child’s lollipop with red and white stripes, the bold exterior of the Lollipop House makes no attempt to blend with its drab surroundings. However, the interior is comprised of a calming combination of white with natural wood.
The house, which was recently completed by Seoul-based architecture firm Moon Hoon, grew out of the clients’ desire to explore spirals and staircases. The result was a central atrium wrapped in a spiraling staircase with a bold façade of swirling metal panels.
The half-basement level contains a study, and then the rooms rise successively through a living area, kitchen and dining area, master bedroom, children’s bedroom, attic playroom, and audio-visual room. Every level is open to natural light through both windows and skylights.
