Apartment Owners Install a Winding Slide to Bring the Playground Indoors

How much fun is this apartment? For any kid (or kid at heart) that ever wanted a playground in their home, Ki Design has made it happen in Kharkiv, Ukraine. They've installed a winding slide that starts at the second floor, taking you past a vibrant living wall and ending at a cozy sofa and factory-style windows.

The slide is a new addition to the unit. Originally, the space on the second floor had no specific function and was left empty. Ki Design's clients wanted to reimagine the area, implementing an exciting design that wouldn’t bore them in a year's time. Plus, it had to wow their guests. The studio achieved both of these goals with their unconventional solution. In the end, the slide is enthralling and feels at place in the modern home.
