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. Stats for Green Dream Homes Trending: Older & Warm
