Home is where the heart is, or so they say. Some homes are so strange that I’m not sure my heart would ever be in it, though.
Blogger Hannes Coudenys has been documenting some of the peculiar and strange Belgian homes, posting photos to both Facebook and Instagram for the world to see and enjoy.
I’ve seen some weird architecture before, but some of these homes really take the cake. Keep scrolling to check out some of these bizarre designs.
Drop a Box on it
In all seriousness, it looks like someone took a beautiful and eclectic row of buildings, and just dropped a metal box on top.
Speaking of Boxes
This looks like one of those traps in a cartoon where they prop a box up with a stick.
I don’t know if this is a home, or a garage. I’m not sure I care either way.
The Little House
This reminds me of the classic children’s book, The Little House.
Tons of Natural Light
Do you think they got a discount on mismatched discontinued windows?
The Weekend Shiteau
You know the saying, “more money than sense”?
The House has Eyes
Do you think that someone built this without realizing that it was going to look like it has a giant rabbit face?
Ready for Takeoff
This can’t be someone’s house. It looks like a really ugly bank from the early 80’s with wings on top.
Something Completely Different
The parallelogram window is what’s really throwing me off here. Two sides match the bottom, and two sides match the roof. Neither works.
I thought the sideways roof was strange on the last one, but this is a whole new level of strange.
Windows Up Top Only
What are you doing inside your home that you can’t possibly have any windows for your neighbors to accidentally see in?
I know that emojis didn’t exist when this building was created, but they still had to know it looks like a face, right?
Just Add on Top
They had this building that was so beautiful that the demand to live here was too high. Then they hired a discount architect to add more condos on top, and that solved the supply versus demand problem in more way than one.
CUT MY HOUSE INTO PIECES
THIS IS MY LAST CARPORT
Once you see it, you can’t ever unsee it.
The Great Pyramids of Belgium
They’re smaller and less impressive.
This is the House of Ska, where you’re only allowed to listen to Streetlight Manifesto, The Toasters, and Big D and the Kids Table. Reel Big Fish is only acceptable before “Sell Out.”
Perhaps they had a really hard time with folks not being able to find their place.
Just the Roof
You know those heads on Easter Island that were discovered to have bodies buried underground? Do you think that this roof has a house buried under there?
I say “whimsical,” but I really mean “built by a cartoon-obsessed crazy person” (who also didn’t bother with a driveway?)
Speaking of Whimsical
Has anyone ever told these people that their place looks like a stylized elephant?
Tinky-Winky Loves Unlimited Soup, Salad, and Breadsticks
Is it just me, or is this some strange combination of an Olive Garden and the Teletubbies’ underground bunker?
I Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say, so I Shouldn’t Say Anything at All
I just….I don’t even know what the architect was going for here.
Half a House
What happened to the rest of it?
I don’t know what this house is waiting on, but it sure seems determined.
SOMEONE forgot that it’s a Bring Your Own Roof party.
Look, wifi is expensive, and we just don’t have the money for super fast speeds. You’re just going to have to wait.
Speaking of Slow Wifi
This house hasn’t loaded the windows yet.
What can you even do with a room at an angle? Do you think the furniture is bolted down?
I think the architect got his plans mixed up and accidentally built the halves on the wrong sides.
A Little Different
Instead of being the black sheep of the family, this home is the white sheep.
The Air Pockets are Caused by the Carbon Dioxide in the Cheese
Can you imagine living in a house made of swiss cheese?
A Slice of Heaven
That’s it, though, Just a tiny little slice.
