Lollipop House: Striped and Candy-Bright in South Korea

Lollipop House, Moon Hoon, South KoreaStanding out as comically absurd in a cityscape of unremarkable beige buildings, the Lollipop House by architect Moon Hoon is absolutely one-of-a-kind. With its odd shape and nearly windowless facade, the home in Giheung-Gu, South Korea can seem a bit impractical, but the interior is surprisingly bright and welcoming.

Lollipop House, Moon Hoon, South KoreaThough it looks no more than two stories from the outside, the Lollipop House contains no less than seven staggered levels from the kitchen on the first floor to various living areas, bedrooms, an attic playroom and even an upper level AV room.

Lollipop House, Moon Hoon, South KoreaAccording to Inhabitat, Moon Hoon used timber and metal rather than the concrete construction that is standard in South Korea, and metals that are easily recyclable and more affordable. The house has a radiant floor heating system, and the central staircase leads up to a large skylight that fills the home with energy-efficient daylighting.
