Bubble Castle

The Bubble House

This bulbous compound sits on the southwest coast of France. As one can see this structure uses no sharp lines or edges in its design. Lovag [the designer] unified the home with its natural surrounding by bringing outdoor elements inside, including palm trees and a waterfall.

Leaf House

The Leaf House

The roof of this home in Brazil looks like a giant flower with six petals, each of which covers a different section of the home. This home was built without hallways to allow the beach breeze to flow throughout the house.

The Nautilus

The Nautilus

Architect Javier Sensonian practices what he calls “bio-architecture,” a style that has led him to design buildings shaped like snakes, whales and several other creatures. The Nautilus was created to imitate a crustacean’s shell, and its cavernous interior is filled with vegetation and small trees.

Winchester Mystery

The Winchester Mystery

This house may not look strange from this angle but this house boasts 40 bedrooms, three elevators, 47 fireplaces, 17 chimneys, and 467 doorways. The house originally had seven levels, but an earthquake in 1906 collapsed three of them. Tourists now flock to the house to see its many quirks, including a staircase that leads straight to the ceiling. The owner and designer Sarah Winchester was known to design at will and add random features as she went.
