15 Unusual Buildings That Made Us Wonder What It Would Be Like to Live in Them

With overpopulation becoming more and more common in big cities, architecture and urban planning projects are constantly having to be reinvented to fit more people into smaller spaces. Whether or not they are based on the rules of this profession, there are impressive buildings (for better and for worse) that make us wonder: “What would it be like to live in those uncommon buildings?”


Bright Side wanted to share some of these “way too original” buildings to surprise you and find out what you think of them.

2. How that Volkswagen Beetle got there in the first place, that’s the real mystery to me...

3. Many Hong Kong residents, who by the way are clearly not afraid of heights, live here.


4. Did they waste some space there or is it just a matter of “style”?
