Most Amazing Homes in the World

Most Amazing
Homes in the World
From the amazing skateboard house in california to the tiny apartment in hong kong, here are 10 of the most amazing homes in the world.

5 - Skateboard House, California – 
Okay, this house is pretty awesome. Also called the PAS house – the initials of its designer Pierre Andre Senizerguues. This home is still in the concept phase and it’s scheduled to be built in Malibu California. The idea is to be able to skate on any surface in or outside of the house. The house will be separated into three different spaces. The first space will consist of a living room, dining room and kitchen, the second space will consist of a bedroom and bathroom, and the third space will consist of a skateboard ramp area. All of the walls in the home are a continuous surface with a smooth transition from wall and floor. Every piece of furniture within the house can be used to skate on, including the chairs, tables, kitchen island and bed.

4 - The ‘Waldspirale’, Germany – 
The Waldspirale, or Forest Spiral, is located in Darmstadt, Germany and was built in the 1990’s. This residential building has over 1000 windows and each one is different. All the corners of the building, from corners of the rooms and the corners on the exterior have all been rounded. The designer of the structure once called straight lines “the devil’s tool,” and you can see this philosophy translated to the design. The tall spiraled building is crowned with a forest of many varieties of trees, from maple to lime to beech. The building was completed in 2000 – the same year the designer died.

3 - The Ennis House, California – 
The Ennis House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and can be found in Los Angeles California. The house uses a textile block design and was built using interlocking concrete blocks. There are two buildings that make up the home. The first building is the main house and the second building is the chauffer’s apartment and garage. The house is 10,000 square feet and the design connects public rooms with private rooms. The house was sold in 1940 to John Nesbitt, who had Wright add a swimming pool, billiard room and heating system to the design of the house. Before the house was even completed, the house had some structural issues, including cracks and lower parts of the foundation buckling under pressure. In 2006, a grant was issued to help renovate the existing house. The house was put on the market in 2009 for $15 million and after sitting on the market for over a year, the price was reduced to around $7.5 million. The house was still on the market in 2011 with an asking price of $6 million and was finally sold to a business executive in 2011 for $4.5 million.

2 - Giant Seashell House, Mexico City – 
This house would definitely get the award for most beautiful house on this list. The Giant Seashell House is located in Mexico City and is officially named the Nautilus House.
 Designed by Javier Senosiain, the house was built in 2006 and highlights a colorful mosaic of beautiful every color in the rainbow. The house is home to a family of four and the inside is just as unique as the outside. The interior of the home contains plants all through the house and a spiral staircase. The design is meant to be organic and the natural curves and rounded corners are supposed to mimic the shapes found in nature.
The AURA Residence is located in Cyprus and sits on a plot of land just 1525 square meters at the water’s edge. Commissioned by Mobius Design Group, the 912 square meter house was inspired by a painting called “The Great Wave,” and it’s easy to see why. The unusual shapes and lines of the structure resemble lapping waves and was constructed using stainless metal and glass. The modern look of the house doesn’t end with aesthetics, the interior utilizes automated hi-tech systems. Some of the perks this home is equipped with are a gym, media room, swimming pool, two Jacuzzis and a yoga platform.
