We have always been intrigued by architectural wonders around the world, be it landmarks or actual residential houses. That being said, many people around the world have taken the liberty to maximise their creativity by designing some of the most unique and bizarre houses you have ever seen.

There are two ways to look at these creations. For one, they challenge regular ‘living’ and they can actually be a hassle to live in. However, if you look at it on the flip side, they can actually be amazing works of art with state-of-the-art designs.

Here are 10 Bizarre Houses Around The World That Are Actually Awesome.

#1 ANCIENT GREECE

Located in Eastern Lebanon, houses in Miziara are all an eclectic mix of unique styles and designs not seen anywhere in the world. One of our favourites has to be this one (pictured in the opening).This residential home mimics an actual Grecian structure or an ancient Greek temple and it look breath-taking. Imagine living there!

Also in Miziara, we chanced upon a house shaped like a commercial aeroplane. There is nothing quite like this.

#3 HELLO KITTY PALACE

Wait, before you judge our taste in homes, imagine the thought and effort put into actually designing and constructing an actual house that looks like a little child’s playhouse!

A homeowner in Shanghai was actually so obsessed with this Japanese cartoon icon that she had this house built. And we know of many girls who would pay to have a house like that.

#4 IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

The story behind this adorable house goes as such—in 1968, a group of men decided to build a tiny shelter on this beautiful rock. Why? Just because they wanted to. It is located on river Drina in the Western Serbian town of Bajina Basta.

Sometimes, life is about randomness like that.

#5 NARROWEST IN THE WORLD

Deemed as the narrowest house in the world, a man has successfully built his entire house that is 122cm at the widest part. A Polish architect has built it in Warsaw and it is actually open for rental if you are ever in Poland.

#6 PYRAMID HOUSE

We are not done with Miziria just yet. It is one of the places in the world where everywhere you head to, you see a crazy residential house. This one is shaped after a pyramid with Egyptian-style furnishings and furniture. From the outside, it does look more like a roof of a house, without the actual bottom structure that holds it up.

#7 SHARK ROOF

Just how cool is this?! Spotted in 2013 is a house in Oxford, where the homeowner built a massive structure on his or her roof, mimicking a shark crashing into it. It was actually made in tribute to the dropping of the bomb in Nagasaki on its 41st anniversary.

#8 TEAPOT HOME

Located in Scotland, this quirky building is shaped exactly like a teapot from the outside. It was put up on sale in 2014 for only £10,000 because of its minuscule size.

#9 UPSIDE DOWN

This was made as a tourist attraction in Moscow Russia, and as much as it looks cool, we actually got pretty dizzy just staring at this photo! And that upside down car though…

#10 VERTICAL LIVING

Made by Brazilian artists Tiago and Gabriel Primo, these vertical beds and living structure are technically not just a building but they have actually created a whole liveable area on a wall. This calls for some serious applause.
