Outstanding Architectural Structures That You Should See

When people love to learn about the history of a new place or destination, they usually look at the local culture, which you can see in the food, dialects, and textiles. But what they don’t know is that the buildings can actually reveal what the place is really all about. When you travel to certain areas, you often see iconic buildings or local landmarks, and they are, in essence, silent witnesses to past eras, kingdoms, and tastes. However, they can also offer us clues to what the future holds (the great travel gram is just a plus!).

Today, Best Access Doors would like to share with you 20 outstanding architectural structures from around the world that we compiled. Check out these buildings with unusual design themes that are indeed a spectacle to behold.

1. Diamond house by XTEN Architecture

Found in Santa Monica, California, USA, this Diamond house is actually a unique house extension with a creative stencil-like design.

2. UFOGEL: Australian Alps Spaceship Lodge

If you think this UFO spaceship-like house looks cool or if you're a die-hard UFO fan, then you should check out its interior that’s made almost entirely of wood-- merely a perfect combination with the beautiful East Tyrol landscape.

3. The Kinetic Façade Brisbane Domestic Terminal Car Park

This architectural structure is an incredible 8-story high, 5,000 sq. miles of suspended aluminum panels that are good for providing shade and natural ventilation to the car park within.4

4. Habitable Polyhedron by Manuel Villa

Designed by Columbian architect, Manuel Villa, this unusual polyhedron-shaped house with the suburban atmosphere in mind is made mainly of wood, with one glass wall, and round roof window that ensures a good view of the sky at night.

5. Joseph DiPasquale’s Disk Office with a Hole

Completed in Guangzhou, China, in the year 2019, this 138-meter-tall structure was designed in the likeness of the ancient Chinese double jade disk.

6. The Bloom Aquatic Farm by Sitbon Architects

Although this is still not constructed and won’t probably get built soon, this is still a very interesting concept. The Bloom Aquatic Farm is basically a phytoplankton farm that tries to battle global warming by absorbing excess carbon dioxide while releasing oxygen.

7. Studio Daniel Libeskind Apartment Building

Located in Berlin, Germany, this futuristic-looking apartment building is scheduled for completion this year. It covers 10,000 sq. meters and will house 73 apartment units.

8. Transparent House by Philip K Smith

This house in California uses mirrors, LEDs, and other electronics, to create two optical illusions for onlookers. What makes this structure amazing is that it is transparent by day and disco by night.

9. The Barbie Dream House

For every Barbie fan out there, this is their dream come true-- a dream home with different kinds of Barbie-themed areas. This house is painted almost entirely in pink and has 13 Barbie-inspired rooms.

10. Dymitr Malcew’s Floating House

If there is a Barbie dream house for Barbie fans, this Floating House would be the ideal home for nature lovers out there. The Dymitr Malcew's Floating House floats on water with enough rooms for a small family that almost seems too good to be true.

11. Modular Hexagonal Home by Barry Jackson

Inspired by the structure of a honeycomb, this house has 100 sq. feet of living space and can be expanded with ease depending on what you require.

12. Johnston Marklee’s Rotunda Residence for Series of Spanish Holiday Homes

The Johnston Marklee’s Rotunda Residence for Series of Spanish Holiday Homes is another UFO spaceship-inspired design. It has a circular roof and floor and is one of the vacation houses for a national park in Spain.

13. Fernanda Canales’ Maruma House

Maruma House is a spacious house located in a residential area in Mexico City. The idea behind this structure is to create an open-concept home that’s full of overlapping box shapes while also keeping privacy at the same time.

14. Nick Olson & Lilah Horwitz's $500 DIY Glass Home

It might sound unbelievable, but this house in West Virginia had a building budget of only $500. This $500 glass home only consists of wood and recycled glass.

15. Studio SeARCH & Christian Muller Architect's Villa Vals

This design’s most creative aspect is that it is an attempt to build a villa within a natural landscape fully. If you look at this architectural structure is genuinely astonishing.

16. Crofthouse by James Stockwell Architect

You can locate the Crofthouse in Victoria, Australia. The shape of a sand dune inspired the design of this zinc-clad structure.

17. H&P Architects’ Blooming Bamboo Home

The H&P Architects from Vietnam came up with this ingenious design of a house made entirely of bamboo in order to cope with floods of up to 3 meters high. Talk about going green!

18. Huainan Fangkai Decoration Project Co's Piano House

For any music lovers who are in Huainan, China, this architectural structure is definitely a must-see. With its design of a violin and piano combination, this building is truly amazing and makes up a fully functional and beautifully designed building.

19. Antti Lovag’s Unique Bubble Palace

This villa in Massif de l’Esterel simply looks gorgeous with its shape of bubbles design motif and a height of 13,000 sq. feet. The aesthetic of the buildings in the villa is what you would usually see in 80's movies or pictures on how they thought the  future of architectural design would look.

20. Upside Down Polish Cabin by Daniel Chapevski

You might not believe this and would just think that people only photoshopped photos of this structure. However, we’re telling you that this upside-down house really does exist in Szymbark, Poland. You can really tell that Poland has architects that would go above and beyond to create the world's first habitable upside-down house. Everything about the house just looks quirky, and no person would ever want to imagine themselves living inside it for the rest of their lives.
