This is one of the coolest ways we can think of to give new life to an old airplane.
Sculpted from cement and iron, the 32-foot-tall house known as the Sphere has three stories and a rope swing attached to the outside.
The 27-story skyscraper—built as a private home for a family of five—boasts a spa, ballroom, movie theater, and yoga studio.
Designed to save energy, the seven-room eco-friendly home is covered with grass and earth.
The grass-covered dwelling was made from scrap wood, twisty tree limbs, and plaster. Inside, floor-to-ceiling tree trunks hold up the roof.
A seashell was the inspiration for this house.
Feel like you're living in a bubble? With this house, you're living in lots of them! Bonus: a panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea.
The bathroom of this toilet-shaped house may have glass walls, but don’t worry. If you want privacy, just push a button, and the walls cloud up. The builder of this home must be flushed with pride.
