10 Extremely Brilliant Home Designs from Around the World | 2020


Home design is a hot topic of debate when it comes to personal taste. Meanwhile, there are those that think outside
those boundaries and shun the societal norm. I’m Reacher and today we’re bringing you ten
crazy & unique homes from around the world. Number Ten This giant pinecone is the dream of squirrels
everywhere. Hanging 35 feet in the air and suspended from
the redwood trees in Bonny Doon, California this treehouse blends perfectly into its surroundings. The only way to enter the treehouse is by
climbing a steep ladder and crawling through a trapdoor. But once inside the views of the forest above
and below make the precarious journey well worthwhile. The see-through panels simultaneously provide
360-degree views for those inside, while reflecting the colors of the forest for those outside,
which allows it to be camouflaged among the surrounding trees. The interior features a double bedroom while
down below, at ground level, is a small bathroom that includes a shower, sink, and toilet. Although it is no longer available to visit
with Airbnb, there’s good news if you like it – as it’s currently on the market for
$150,000. Number Nine Life in a big city can be stressful, that’s
why Japanese architecture studio Life Style Koubou designed Rings. At first, the Fukushima based home looks extremely
bland as it is composed of various concrete walls stacked w/in one another and having
no external windows. It looks more like a Mayan temple than a traditional
home, which makes for a stark contrast to the conventional apartment buildings that
neighbor it. Inside, the house manages to be full of natural
light through the use of open courtyards that encircle the living spaces. This allows residents to venture outside,
while still being sheltered from the surrounding city life. Number Eight Casa Oruga, on the outskirts of Santiago,
Chile, has been nicknamed the Caterpillar House for the way its steel exterior tilts
up and down the sloping site. As no construction is permitted above 3,300
feet, locals wishing to live in the mountain foothills need to get creative. As a result, the architect chose to use shipping
containers for the construction materials. Using these meant the owners had the added
benefit of a shortened construction time as well as lowering the final cost. The home’s rusty, brown exterior allows
it to morph into the surrounding Andes Mountains, and its structure allows air to run through
the shipping containers and keep the house cool. There’s even a lap pool and jacuzzi built
into one of the side decks, allowing some respite from the harsh mountain climate. Number Seven The S-House in Saitama, Japan is composed
of intersecting diagonal planes and stairs, encased in an entirely glass external structure. The resulting effect? A house that looks completely see-through,
where the abundance of natural light, together with its white walls, combine to make the
house glow brightly in daylight. Well-positioned furniture and interior walls
offer some privacy for the bathroom and bedroom, however being in the rest of the house feels
like living in a fishbowl, where people can watch your every move. This transparency is a theme for the designer
who wanted to play on the relationship between space, nature, and humans. Number Six Home to former Playboy model Barbi Benton,
The Copper Palace is like a 27,000 square-foot spaceship. Every wall and surface is unique, making the
home awash with color. From the dome-shaped projection room to the
crystal-themed disco, each room has a unique aesthetic with custom furniture and decorations. Designed to be able to accommodate a 150-person
dinner party, but also provide for privacy, the architect opted to build four separate
stairwell pods into its seven floors. These pods jut out just above each other but
don’t offer views into another pod, so it’s as if there are different mini-spaceships
combining to create one giant mothership. Seen from the front, it gives the illusion
of one massive window wrapping around the entire house. I’m Allie, and it’s Minds Eye Trivia time. By looking at just these images, do you know
what this is and where it’s from? Leave the correct answer or your best guess
in the comment section below. Number Five Hidden away in the Coachella Valley is a 3-bedroom,
4-bathroom house nestled in among the rocks. Built in 1993, the owners only request of
the architect was that their new home would “not be a box with windows”. And from the look of things, it seems he delivered. You could be forgiven for imagining the interior
would feel like living in a cave, but although it consists mostly of rock, it has a warm
feeling due to its curved walls, flowing ceilings, and use of organic materials. Natural light also filters through from the
concrete panels above, making the home bright despite the harsh climate outside. Number Four This towering structure in the remote Alaskan
wilderness looks like it was imagined right out of a Dr. Seuss book, hence the local nickname
of “the Dr. Seuss House”. The owner planned to build a 1,600 sq ft log
cabin as he wanted a home with a better view of the mountains. Once he realized he could put pillars on the
top of it, it dawned on him to put a house on top of the house. And he just kept going from there. The only reason he stopped was that he would
encroach on federal airspace if he had continued. The structure currently stands at 185 feet
tall. Although you can’t visit the house in person,
you can still hire a pilot and fly overhead. Number Three Once touted as an icon of organic modernist
architecture, the Bavinger House was demolished in 2016. The exterior looked a bit like a children’s
jungle gym, with a matted brown roof that spiraled up around the house in a fan structure
which was supported by cables that attached to the 55-foot tall central mast. On the inside, the ground floor was made up
of plants, pools and an external rock-wall encompassing the home that made it look more
comfortable to climb the staircase rather than walk up it. There were also no interior walls, leaving
one to draw curtains across the room to create a sense of privacy. Ultimately, it met its demise due to funding
problems that were exacerbated by damage from a storm in 2011. Number Two When the Wave House was built, it certainly
made waves in the community. And no, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity
to say it that way. The outside walls are covered in over 300
custom pieces of white aluminum paneling, positioned to achieve a cascading effect. The front door, which is the main focal point,
is constructed entirely from skateboard decks. At the back of the house by the pool, the
paneling on the house changes to mimic how a bird’s feathers overlap. This helps to keep the house drier as well
as cooler by promoting air circulation. The designer used the theme of nature so that
nothing is repeated. Even the interior wall tiles are placed differently
to create unique effects throughout the house. The use of white on both the exterior and
interior walls allows the design to play on shadows, giving the effect of the first-floor
flowing into the second and blurring together. Number One This final entry on our list is actually a
13-home apartment building located in Guilford, Connecticut, now known affectionately as the
“Spaceship” building. The structure was built in the 1980s by a
couple looking to build luxury condominiums, who asked a local architect to create something
“really wild”. The result was an elevated structure, which
initially horrified the local residents who called it “monstrous” and tried to prevent
it from even being built. A now-legendary impassioned speech by the
architect meant the planning board passed his proposal. Two years and $2.5 million later, the Spaceship
building was born. Its copper-clad exterior may have weathered
into a more bronze patina, but its place is now cemented as a symbol of the town. Hi everyone, if you enjoyed this video, leave
