The Rainbow House, London
The Rainbow House is a magical oasis on a busy road filled with people and noise.
When you step through its front door, you enter a parallel universe of fun, colour,
movement and sensuality, leaving the ordinary world far behind.
The house is a living artwork in which every corner offers a unique and magical discovery.
In the master bedroom, a circular bed rotates into position so that you can look out any window.
A trap door in the floor pops open to reveal a slide that zips you down to the living room below,
where an over-sized sofa creates a 12 x 8 metre soft piazza for playing, sleeping and living.
These surprising and disparate elements unite into one composition around a central spiral staircase.
This bespoke fibreglass and steel fabrication passes through the full spectrum of the rainbow as it
rises through the house. At each storey, its hue spreads out and influences the colour of that floor,
creating a visual rhythm on a vertical axis. Sun pours down through skylights at the very top of the house,
drenching the staircase in light and bringing it to life.
