While many of us might be happy with our cookie-cutter house in the suburbs, there are many of us who would prefer a more unusual abode. Here are some of the world’s most unusual looking houses.
1. Spaceship House, Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA
This 2,300 sq. ft. saucer-shaped home is suspended a story off the ground on six large reinforced cement pillars. Plus, you also have an absolutely breathtaking view of the Tennessee River courtesy of the house’s unique 360 degree panoramic windows.
2. Toilet Bowl House, Suwon, South Korea
The former mayor of Suwon, Sim Jae-Duck built his two-storey, toilet shaped home in 2007 to commemorate the 2007 inaugural meeting of the World Toilet Association. Nicknamed “Mr. Toilet” Jae-Duck, who passed away in 2009, made it his life’s work to advocate for the clean and efficient sanitation for more than the 2 billion people living without toilets worldwide. The 4,520 sq. ft. steel, concrete and glass building cost $1.1 million and features a showcase, glass-walled bathroom at its center. For those less exhibitionist guests, the glass wall can turn opaque at the touch of a button. The home also features a roof-top balcony, accessible by a “toilet drain” staircase which is also equipped with rainwater harvesting technology.
