1. Transparent House, Japan
Let's say that you won't be hiding anything while staying in this state-of-the-art architectural marvel. Built by Sou Fujimoto Architects, House NA is a fully transparent building, built using glass and steel framing, though it doesn't look like it but the concept behind this design was based on the idea of living in a tree. Plenty of natural light, however no privacy, would you like to spend a night in this house?
2. World’s Slimmest House, Poland
Keret House is the world's slimmest house in Warsaw, Poland. A structure and art installation designed by the architect Jakub Szczęsny is the narrowest house in the world with 3ft at its thinnest point and 5ft at its widest. Named after its first tenant Etgar Keret, this two-story installation contains one bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom and a living area with two non-opening windows. Even though it is used for residing, the house is considered as an "art installation" as it does not meet Polish building codes.

5. Church Converted Into Modern Family Home, Holland
Since 1970, more than 1000 churches have been closed by the communities in the Netherlands, out of which almost third of all the churches have been demolished. In order to save the history and architectural wonders, Zecc Architecten have converted two of these churches into beautiful residences. These converted churches are grand, tastefully redecorated without hampering the original structure. Dwelling into the residential spaces like dining, living or bedroom with high ceilings and arches with huge glazed windows definitely better than the apartment homes!

9. The Toilet House, Suwon, South Korea
Founder of the museum and one time mayor of the city of Suwon, Sim Jae-Duck was born in a toilet at his grandparents' house. This might explain his obsession for all things toilet related. Famously known as Mr. Toilet, his obsession went so far that he demolished his existing house and rebuilt it in the shape of a giant toilet. Even the actual toilet in his house is right in the centre of the ground floor with a full size glass door, giving a perfect view of the living room and garden right from the sit. If he wants privacy, the glass turns opaque with just one flick of a switch. After his demise, the house was donated to the city and converted into a toilet museum.
10. Waterfall Home, Pennsylvania
Built in 1935 by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, Falling water is a gorgeous hideaway in the rural southwestern Pennsylvania. The house is built over a waterfall on Bear Run, where a stream flows at 1298 ft above the sea level and breaks to fall at 30feet. Known as Fallingwater, the house was built as a weekend home for owners Mr.Edgar Kaufmann and his family and was designed using many design elements of Japanese architecture to create harmony between the family and nature.
