Over-the-top Houses

22 Jan

I don’t think any of these houses would win any awards for their outstanding architecture but I must say if I had the money I wouldn’t mind getting one.

Warning: Over the top houses to follow.

Arkansas Castle

The one I think I would like most is #5, tha Arkansas Castle, because really who doesn’t want a castle.

Other highlights include:

#4 The cliff top residence built with plexiglass roof so you can watch the waves crash over it.

#6 Castle in the Bronx because how awesome is a castle then you put it in one of the largest cities in the world.

#1 A green dome that looks like a UFO. Most interesting about this one is that it rotates to take advantage of the sun based on what is happening on the inside.

    WOW! Yeah, seriously, who wouldn’t want a castle…

    I would have to say that one of my favorites is the cliff top residence. It is a fantastic example of turning a normal architecture i.e. a personal residence into experiential architecture…how many houses do you know of that not only sits on the water front, but also has waves splashing over it?! Very unique!
