• Number 8 the Transparent House 

We've seen a lot of houses that shy away from corners and edges and blend into nature but now it's time for something completely different what if a designer wanted to blend into a city environment which is all but bursting with sharp corners and square shapes well this was the idea that architect Sue Fujimoto had in mind when he designed a house for a young couple located in a quiet Tokyo neighborhood even though it's full of Corners this house is actually made mostly of glass and it's still in stark contrast with the typical concrete lock you see all around it and although it looks nothing like The Hobbit house the concept is remarkably similar because it's associated with the idea of living in a tree the owners had the desire to live like Nomads which was accomplished by Building 21 individual floor plates at various Heights in essence it's a collection of rooms that acts as a single room at the same time the Creator calls this a Unity of separation and coherence the spaces in the house are not hermetically isolated but connected in a strange and unique way it's like communicating with one another while sitting on different tree branches Fujimoto says this house stands equally between nature and artificiality and it's a contemporary adaptation of the richness experienced by our predecessors who used to live in trees ...

• Number 4. Upside down House

 The first ever upside down house was a political statement as much as it was an art piece it was designed by polish businessman Daniel zapowski and represented the uncertainty of life in post-communist Era Poland the timber house posed several challenges but after 114 days and over 200 cubic meters of concrete for the foundations alone it was finished it was built in the center of education and Regional promotion in zimbark Poland and has since become a world-renowned tourist attraction the interior is furnished in a style typical of the 1970s when Poland was still a communist country you can even see a vintage TV showing old propaganda shows apparently the architect was trying to show that the utopian communist world is actually an upside down image of reality since then many upside down houses sprung up all over the world including countries like Belarus Russia Georgia Austria Germany South Africa and of course a bunch of them all over the U.S and they seem to get better work year and more original As Time Goes By by now they've become somewhat of a cliche but that still doesn't prevent hordes of tourists from visiting them each year there's just something strange about entering a house that has everything upside down most people say they feel a bit nauseous when they first enter such a house and it takes some time to get used to everything being out of place would you ever visit an upside down house..

• Number 3. Helio Dome 

Some people build houses as an artistic expression but there are those who want to build the ultimate eco-friendly house one that uses natural resources in a sustainable way one of those people is Eric wasser a well-known cabinet maker who decided to briefly depart from his work and spend time building an Eco house his idea was developed in the 1990s and the concept was finished in 2000 it even won first prize in a competition it took a few years to get the permit to actually build the thing but it was finally completed in 2011 but what is it and why is it special apart from looking really weird the idea behind this house was to utilize the sun's energy to the maximum it was built in the shape of a sundial and at a specifically measured angle so if you choose to build this house its inclination would have to be measured again according to the latitude of your location the idea is actually so simple it's genius during the summer when the sun is higher up the house gets hardly any direct sunlight so it's kept rather cool in Winter the sun's trajectory across the sky is much lower so then the house gets more direct sunlight which keeps it warm solar panels on the roof provide hot water but also protect from overheating during the warmest months with proper insulation ensuring very little heat loss from the inside the so-called heliodome is incredibly efficient...

• Number 2. Flintstones house

 I can't resist going back to the 70s again it seems like Architects were just so much more fun back then one of them named William Nicholson decided to utilize a newly invented building technique it was known as the monolithic dome construction he built several structures including the house that would later become famous as the Flintstone house in Hillsborough California it's a three-bedroom two-bath house and has a two-car garage and around 2 700 square feet of living area but the most impressive thing about it is that all the structures are round bubbly and playful and although passersby Marvel at it the neighbors do not like it at all after it was originally built the runoff from the excessive rain started damaging the buildings and many of the walls cracked this prompted the neighbors to petition for the eyesore of a house to be removed but the owners had a different idea and did a complete reconstruction it was then with a Fresh coat of paint that the house started to resemble something out of the Flintstone cartoons in 2017 the property was bought by Florence Fang who very much liked the Flintstone idea Fang added numerous Whimsical decorations including steel dinosaurs and Flintstone characters the snobs that live around her tried to have the statues removed by legal action but the court decided in favor of Miss Fang I bet she built even more statues after that just to show them who's boss that's what I would do...
