Thinking Outside the Box with Ugly Belgian Houses

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.

Anger Issues

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

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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.

Uh, What?

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?

Emoji House

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

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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

Male-box

Once you see it, you can’t ever unsee it.

The Great Pyramids of Belgium

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

They’re smaller and less impressive.

Skankin’

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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.”

Number 9

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

Perhaps they had a really hard time with folks not being able to find their place.

Just the Roof

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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?

Whimsical

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

Has anyone ever told these people that their place looks like a stylized elephant?

Tinky-Winky Loves Unlimited Soup, Salad, and Breadsticks

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

I just….I don’t even know what the architect was going for here.

Half a House

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

What happened to the rest of it?

SOON

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

I don’t know what this house is waiting on, but it sure seems determined.

BYOR

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

SOMEONE forgot that it’s a Bring Your Own Roof party.

Textures Loading

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

This house hasn’t loaded the windows yet.

Useless Space

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

What can you even do with a room at an angle? Do you think the furniture is bolted down?

Mixed Up

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

I think the architect got his plans mixed up and accidentally built the halves on the wrong sides.

A Little Different

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

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

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

Can you imagine living in a house made of swiss cheese?

A Slice of Heaven

UglyBelgianHouses via Facebook

That’s it, though, Just a tiny little slice.
