When building a home, there is often a good chance that you will end up in a traditional style house that resembles many other nearby homes. However, some people want to avoid tradition altogether, opting to design homes that stand apart from others as a reflection of their personalities. We found 18 mind-blowing and bizarre home designs that will surprise you in the fact that they stand upright! These homes will give you a fresh perspective on design and function! Are you ready? Let’s take a look at a few of the most bizarre houses in the world!

House1

Nestled in the trees, this house resembles a cross between a tree house and a bird’s egg. Featuring a single window, there is little room from inside to enjoy the beauty of nature. However, we are fairly certain the intent of this home is to have its residents enjoy the great outdoors as it is nestled in a lush forest of evergreens and tropical trees.

House2

Look again! No, this picture has not been distorted in any way. In fact, the home has been constructed in a unique architectural design that creates the appearance of being distorted. Structurally sound despite the appearance, this uniquely beautiful home opens its center to a ceiling of glass windows that offer breathtaking overhead views.

This tall glass structure also looks like it is distorted or warped. An architect’s delight, the building is a masterpiece as many often wonder how the angled glass could support such a structure! With its unique curve and odd shape, the home even features a patio for residents to enjoy exquisite sunrises and sunsets from its unique angle.

The Upside-Down House tourism destinations

Let’s be honest: if there weren’t people in this picture, we would have turned the photo around to ensure the house was right-side up. But, thanks to the long line of guests waiting in line, we are quite certain that this house was built upside down. Without any danger of rolling down the hill, the home was constructed to look as though it had been tossed aside and toppled over, a successful design to say the least!

The Cube Houses tourism destinations

This row of homes looks as though it is straight from an animated movie or comic street. The yellow row of homes were constructed in cube-like fashion atop a retail center and look as though they are peering down on visitors below. With nosy-like fashion, these residences also look like they are close to toppling over in their attempt to get a better look below!

House6

One of the oddest homes on our list, this is quite possibly the hardest home to imagine someone actually living in comfortable. The design is not the result of an earthquake but of the architect’s choice to build a unique living space. From its odd angles to the framing itself, there is no doubt that this is definitely a fairly odd place to call home!

House7

This home was built as a replica of a David Steinbeck home that was built especially for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The house was designed to mirror its natural landscape and work with the beauty of the surrounding geography. From the stone work and extended deck to the waterfall, this is the most peaceful home on our list.

House8

Perhaps you are a science fiction enthusiast and want people to believe that an alien spaceship has landed in your yard. If that’s the case, then this home is perfect for you! Constructed out of glass to resemble a spaceship, this home is located in the middle of a vacant field, which only adds to the believability of this sci-fi story.

House9

How exactly is this home standing? One of the modern marvels of construction, this house seems to teeter atop a small foundation albeit completely sturdy construction. The home resembles a large barn and is located amid a grassy field.  While we are quite certain the barn is not inhabited by normal farm animals, records tell us inhabitants still live in the home.

House10

Who doesn’t love going on picnics? The residents of this home took their love of picnics to the extreme by hiring an architect to design their home as a gigantic picnic basket. As you can see, each hole, in what would normally be a wicker basket, is a pane of glass allowing for natural light and gorgeous views of the area. Can you imagine telling your date to pick you up at home, which is actually a picnic basket?

House11

Resembling an old junked car, this modern marvel was constructed atop a hillside offering beautiful views of the valley. The exterior was built and painted to reflect the rust of an old forgotten car. Regardless of the design, we can’t help but imagine the incredible views of the beautiful landscape from the numerous windows.

House12

This is actually the home of an international soccer star. Despite its architectural beauty amid a gorgeous lush green landscape, many are referring to the home as “The Toilet.” Why? At second glance, the white upper level of the home and its anchored white base cause it to resemble an actual bathroom toilet where the glass windows resemble a water-type feature.

House13

Believable or not, the larger dog is actually a home, just take a closer look. The stairwell near the back legs of the dog lead into the home where you can see a single window as the dog’s eye. An interesting and comical design, the smaller dog is actually only for decoration.

House14
