The latest building to feature an indoor slide is this South Korean house by Seoul studio Moon Hoon, where a wooden slide is slotted into a combined staircase and bookshelf (+ slideshow).
The ground floor is dedicated to the children and includes the wooden staircase and slide. Open treads create bleacher-style seating areas for a home cinema, but they also double-up as bookshelves for a small study area tucked underneath.
“The key was coming up with a multi-functional space,” say the architects. “The multi-use stair and slide space bring much active energy to the house. Not only children but also grown-ups love the slide staircase.”
Two twin bedrooms are located behind the study, plus the youngest children can also use the large second-floor attic as a playroom.
