Rock stars: Playful chalets offer ultimate escape

24 : 04 : 2013 Design : Escapes : Rock It Suda

South Korea – South Korean architect Moon Hoon has created a series of chalets designed to add an element of play into architecture.

Designers and architects are creating playful landscapes – playscapes – in a bid to blur fantasy and reality, and enable the inner child in consumers to escape, as we reported in our Playscapes macro inspire.

The European-style Rock It Suda pensions, or chalets, commissioned by a band of the same name, are designed to be weekend getaways. Each centres on a theme, including Spain, Barbie, Stealth, Ferrari, Cave and Korean Traditional House, and features bold colours and geometric shapes, for a fantasy-like appearance. 

The Spanish chalet reflects the traditions of the bull-fighting country, with horns protruding from the buildings and a blue bedroom. In line with the brands, the Ferrari house is decked out in vibrant reds, and the Barbie chalet is completely pink. 

The buildings are designed to offer the ultimate escape for the city dweller, providing a fantasy landscape that fuses and mixes culture, architecture and design.
