A Dream House For Kids


There is nothing more comforting than one’s own home. The recently built Panorama House is a perfect example of what a home should look like. Architect Moon Hoon, designed the house for a client that had four kids and the husband-wife were teachers in their mid-thirties. Their basic requirement was a place for the kids to study, play and read. The upper floor was supposed to be for parents and the lower floor for kids. This particular architect was chosen because of architect’s creativity and playfulness. The name Panorama House was given to the project since the site reminded architect of LA suburbs at night.
