Known as the Toilet House, this unusual building was designed by Sin Jae Duck to mark the launching of the World Toilet Association (he’s one of the head guys) . Made of steel, white concrete and glass, it looks rather sanitary. If you really need to go, it’s located in Seoul, Korea.

“The fairies really own this house
or so the children say,
In fact, they all of them moved in
upon the self same day.”
—Inspired by the House. Mrs Malcolm Mason. 1923.


http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj199/yaryalitsa/unusual%20buildings/HOUSEcloudbeingBUILT.jpg http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj199/yaryalitsa/unusual%20buildings/HOUSEintheCLOUDS.jpg

Originally intended to provide an adequate storage capacity for a basic water supply for Thorpeness village.

Constructed by Braithwaite Engineering Company of London in 1923, it presented Thorpeness Estates with the difficult task of deciding what could be done with such a hideous structure on the skyline. Glencairne Stuart Ogilvie with F. Forbes Glennie (architect) & H. G Keep (works manager) brilliantly disguised it as a house and from miles around one can see what appears to be a cottage lodged in the trees, 70ft high.

This cottage is in fact only the top part of the building which housed the water tank. It had a capacity of 50,000 gallons and was capable of pumping 1800 gallons of water an hour from a well in the re-erected Aldringham Mill with sufficient wind or a petrol engine used as an auxiliary power source in periods of calm. The supporting steel structure was boarded in to provide unique living accommodation below the tank.

The Crooked House, Sopot, Poland
This house is situated in Poland and was created by Polish architect Szotyńscy Zaleski. Its design was inspired by Jan Marcin Szancer illustrations and the pictures of the Swedish artist - Per Dahlberg.

It belongs to one of the most photographed building in the entire Poland, possesses magnificent curves and a blue-green enameled shingles roof. Actually, it was destined to create the impression of a huge dragon, but it failed. The building is always overcrowded and contains a plenty of shops, cafes and bars. And don’t worry, it doesn’t going to fall.

The Dog Park Inn
It’s not a problem to stay at a 5-star super luxurious hotel, but why not try such a romantic place as the Dog Park Inn. It is the most recognizable bed and breakfast hotel in Cottonwood, Idaho. Furnishings in the form of chainsaw dog carvings will definitely draw your attention. And by the way, don’t forget to buy gifts for your pets.

Το σπίτι του Hundertwasser


http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj199/yaryalitsa/unusual%20buildings/HOUSEWaldspirale_Hundertwasser_Buil.jpg

Hundertwasser Building - Germany
The Waldspirale, or "Forest Spiral," is a residential building complex in Darmstadt, Germany.

The U-shaped building's unique facade does not follow a regular grid organization, and the diagonal roof — planted with grass, shrubs, flowers and trees — rises like a ramp along the U-form. Of the 1,000 windows, no two are the same, and trees grow out from many of them.

At its highest point, the building has 12 floors. The building, completed in 2000, was designed by Viennese artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, built by the Bauverein Darmstadt company, and planned and implemented by the architect Heinz M. Springmann.

Hotel Puerta America - Spain
For the design of the fourth floor of the hotel, Plasma Studio created a series of crystallized spaces, with fractured and distorted rooms and hallways, using a "repetitive rhythm of partition walls, service ducts and entrance doors as a sectional framework from which a differentiation of the corridor skin was devised," according to the UK firm.

http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj199/yaryalitsa/unusual%20buildings/ICEHOTEL_sweden_1.jpg

ICE Hotel in Sweden
The ICE Hotel is situated in a small village called Jukkasjärvi, 200 kms north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden. The heart and backbone of this village is the River Torne which flows freely through the unspoilt wilderness. During winter, the ice gets to a metre thick and is used as a source for all the art, architecture and design.

The rooms are decorated with ice art and sculptures. The website quotes, “You sleep in a thermal sleeping bag on a special bed of snow and ice, on reindeer skins. You are awakened in the morning with a cup of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside.�

If you want to know how cold the rooms get, then try between -5 °C to -8 °C degrees. Be prepared to dress in warm thermal underwear and a hat and enjoy the experience of the Artic weather indoors with someone special.

Make sure you book in advance as most weekends are already fully booked. The prices range from £90 ($180) to £250 ($500) a night.

ICE Hotel in Sweden
All of the ice hotels are reconstructed every year, and are dependent upon constant sub-zero temperatures during construction and operation. The walls, fixtures, and fittings are made entirely of ice, and are held together using a substance known as snice, which takes the place of mortar in a traditional brick-built hotel.

ICE Hotel in Sweden
An ice hotel is a temporary hotel made up entirely of snow and sculpted blocks of ice. They are promoted by their sponsors and have special features for travelers who are interested in novelties and unusual environments, and thus are in the class of destination hotels. Their lobbies are often filled with ice sculptures, and food and beverages are specially chosen for the circumstances.

http://thefullblog.files.wordpress.com/2008/01/dancing-house-prague.jpg

The Dancing House
(Czech Republic)
The Dancing House is the nickname given to an office building in downtown Prague, Czech Republic. It was designed by Croatian-born Czech architect Vlado Milunic in co-operation with Canadian architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront plot (where the previous building had been destroyed during the Bombing of Prague in 1945).

The construction started in 1994 and was finished in 1996. The very non-traditional design was controversial at the time. Czech president Vaclav Havel, who lived for decades next to the site, had supported it, hoping that the building would become a center of cultural activity.

Originally named Fred and Ginger (after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers - the house vaguely resembles a pair of dancers) the house stands out among the Neo-Baroque, Neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings for which Prague is famous. On the roof is a French restaurant with magnificent views of the city. The building's other tenants include several multinational firms. (The plans for a cultural center were not realized.) Because it is situated next to a very busy road it depends on forced air circulation, making the interior somewhat less pleasant for its occupants.
