Is this for real? 10 of the world’s most unconventional house designs

Wooden skyscrapers, upside down houses, toilet shaped mansions… Home sweet home! These houses are for real, though they seem too bizarre to be inhabited. Truly one-of-a-kind homes with incredibly imaginative shapes and materials.

Eliphante & Hippodome # Cornville, Arizona

This house was created by artist Michael Kahn and his wife Leda Livant with found materials over a period of 28 years. The compound consists of 3 acres of land and evolved over the years. One of the buildings, the “Hippodome”, is a mosaic-covered creation that looks like a hippo emerging from a lake.

Crooked House # Sopot, Poland

Crooked House’s architecture was inspired by the surrealistic drawings of Polish artists Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg.

Wooden Skyscraper # Arkhangelsk, Russia

Built by a former gangster, this house began by initially being a two-story building. However, a trip to see wooden houses in Japan and Norway convinced him that he hadn’t used roof space efficiently. So the storys kept appearing on top of each other until Nikolai Sutyagin was happy with the final result.

Toilet-Shaped House # Suweon, South Korea

Yes… This unusual house is shaped like a toilet. Sim Jae-Duck, nicknamed “Mayor Toilet”, had the 4,508-square-foot concrete and glass structure built in his native city of Suweon, South Korea to mark the launch of the World Toilet Association. Sim was born into a toilet and has made clean restrooms his life’s work. He now lives in the home.

The Upside-Down House # Szymbark, Poland

This unusual house design is of philanthropist Daniel Czapiewsk’s responsability. He built it as a symbol of communism and the end of the world. The construction attracts tourists from all over the world who, apparently, often become dizzy and ‘seasick’ after just a few moments inside.
