“Jerry House” is a holiday home that was transformed, at the request of the owners, into a unique playground based on the American animated series of short films from the 1940s called “tom and jerry”.
The married couple that owns the house has four sons and they wanted to offer the kids an environment perfect for them, with physical activities that exceed the boundaries of the common lifestyle: running, climbing, hiding, hanging and even falling.
The Jerry House was designed by ONION, who has offered the clients exactly what they wanted: ‘if the house of jerry the mouse were built, it might appear as a big piece of cheese in which the möbius strip would be a desirable route for him to run away from tom the cat. Thus, the dwelling is thought of as the object that children would yearn for and that increases the meaning of having a holiday for the parents,’ said the architects.
If they want to go to bed, the children have to climb the ladder or walk up the steps inside the built-in furnishing, or another way would be to go to their bedrooms directly from the main living hall through a hidden sliding door found above the fifth level of the nests.
The colors used on emphasizing the beauty of this home increased the visual experience of the dwelling. In all the public area was used white to paint the walls, while the private space were personalized by various hues: mustard yellow for the master suite, light purple in the guest room on the second floor, blue for the interior of the tunnels and sleeping area of the two sons and light green for the boys’ bedrooms on the third level.
