Watching movies like Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Big, and even Ghostbusters growing up always made me want a slide or fireman’s pole in my house. Wouldn’t that be a better, faster, and funner (I know that’s not a word) way of going downstairs than using the stairs? Well, the Japanese have created the perfect house for me! These photos and the house are from Level Architects in Japan.

Outside, it looks plain and ordinary.

But inside it’s awesome! Here are the living room shots. Note the ball room:

And the hallway lined with bookshelves. I still think I would need more shelving for all my books:

But the best part is the slide going from the third floor to the bottom floor!

those kids are happy.


You know all the adults in there were going down the slide too, just not on camera. Here is a design drawing of the house. Notice how the figure at the bottom of the slide has its arms up as if saying, HURRAY!!
