Looking more like the products of an architect’s brain on LSD, these houses push the term “avant garde” to its limit. From a house built into a clock, to a house that has no regard for your privacy, yes there is such a thing so stay tuned till the end to know more about it, here are 10 of the most unusual houses in the world. Number 10. The Clocktower Penthouse If you’re like me, you hate the sound of your alarm clock in the morning, so can you imagine living inside the clock itself? The good thing is, this clock doesn’t chime every hour. Atop One Main Street in Brooklyn, New York, an iconic clock tower was transformed into a stunning triplex penthouse, located in the trendy DUMBO or the down under the Manhattan bridge overpass neighborhood. The apartment is part of an old industrial building that was originally built by cardboard manufacturers, and the tower transformation project was developed by David Walentas – the man behind the DUMBO project itself. The jaw-dropping 6,813 square feet penthouse offers you a 360 degree view of the city, overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan. Its signature feature, however, are the four massive clocks, installed in 14-foot-high round windows on each wall. The three-story apartment, with the ceiling going from 16 to 50 feet in height, also has a glass elevator running up its center. The penthouse of the Clock Tower building entered the market in 2009 as the most expensive condo in Brooklyn, listed for $25 million – till then, the most expensive apartment on record had cost a mere $11 million. The realtors, however, have been unsuccessful in selling the Clock Tower penthouse, and it’s now down to $18 million, not exactly a bargain but hey, it’s a small price to pay if you want to live in a clock. Number 9. The Croft House This house is a major work of architectural greatness and has been recognized as so around the world. If follows a very minimalist yet modern design and is located in Victoria, Australia. If you don’t know exactly where it is, it’s quite difficult to find as it blends with the surrounding hill sides. The home was designed by James Stockwell, whose idea was to build a house that blends in with the land surrounding it. Quite unlike many of the other houses in this list, it is an easy home to maintain. Mainly because of the materials used to build it, which are quite unusual. Zinc, among other metals, was used as well as compressed sand resulting into a surprisingly sturdy structure. The home is surrounded by wide ceiling to floor windows allowing for a lot of natural sunlight to enter the residence. A great feature about this house is that it is incorporated with solar energy, which not only makes the house “green” but also reduces living costs. Number 8. The Seashell House Many have wondered what life would be like living in a sea shell, and that was the exact inspiration behind the beautifully crafted Nautilus. This giant seashell house is located in Mexico City, and was built and designed by Javier Senosiain and was built back in 2006. The house features a smooth front facade met with a giant wall of colored mosaics, lighting up the living space in a stunning rainbow effect. Whether you think it looks like a giant snail or seashell, the home is definitely quite strange, but it was actually designed to blend in with the natural surroundings in what Senosiain likes to call “Bio- Architecture.” Inspired by the work of Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright, the house is dominated by smooth surfaces, spiral stairs and natural plantings that makes it feel like you’re living inside a shell. it’s a real house built for a young family with two children who were tired living in a conventional home and wanted to change to one integrated to nature. Number 7. The Pole House This house is as dramatic as it is simple. Designed and built by F2 Architecture, the Pole House overlooks the Great Ocean Road in Australia and takes advantage of its location and spectacular views in a very unusual way. The plot on which it was built is a steep hillside which obviously presented a challenge. The architects came up with the most intriguing solution. they built a concrete platform on a 13-meter-high pylon and they put the house on top.
