British architect Alex Michaelis designed and constructed the perfect family home complete with staircase slide, skylights, a rock-climbing wall and an indoor pool.

Each family member had a voice in the design of this eco-friendly home creating the ultimate at-home playground.

Designed to be self sustaining, this below-ground dwelling was built to let light shine into every room. A green roof that is completely covered with vegetation and soil helps filter out carbon dioxide, and provides insulation for the home.

Implications - Alex Michaelis, a British architect, has without a doubt come up with a design that is the perfect family home. The slide was specifically installed in the home for the children, and the climbing wall is certainly any little munchkin's dream.
