If the idea of living in an apartment equal to a thousand others does not find you enthusiastic, here is a collection of nine houses that will make you daydream.

Each of them has a particularity that has made it unique and that has earned them articles in design magazines all over the world.

Apparently, there is nothing that an architect cannot achieve, all you need is a lot of imagination ... and a good amount of money to invest!

Enjoy this virtual tour through some of the most original and evocative houses in the world.

1. An old water collection tower converted into a house

The huge structure is located in Belgium, precisely in Steenokkerzeel, and until the 1990s was used for the collection of rain water with a capacity of 250,000 liters. It was built between 1938 and 1941 and was even used as a watchtower by the Nazis during World War II. 
Today, the 30-meter tower has been transformed by the Bham Design Studio into a 400-square-meter residence and is inhabited by a couple who occasionally rent a portion of it.

For anyone who has loved the TV series featuring the world's most famous prehistoric family, here is a jewel of architecture. It is a Malibu house owned by the VIP American Dick Clark and designed by architect Philip Jon Brown.

3. The narrowest house in the world

It is called Keret House (named after creator Etgar Keret) and is located in Warsaw, Poland. It was built in the space that separates two existing buildings and measures 72 centimeters in the narrowest part and 1.22 meters in the widest part. 

The idea was born as an art project but inside it offers all the comforts of a real home, becoming a classic example of impossible architecture.

It is located in Nakameguro, Japan, and is the work of the LEVEL Architects studio. The three floors that compose it can be reached either by a ladder (running along the perimeter) or by slides.

5. The transparent house

Let yourself be captivated by this charming home built in Tokyo by the studio Sou Fujimoto Architects. The concept is based on the idea that our predecessors used to sleep and take shelter in the trees. In addition, if on the one hand privacy is completely lacking, light certainly abounds!

The old St.-Jakobus Church is located in Utrecht, Holland, and has now become a beautiful and very spacious residence. The Zecc Architects studio has redesigned its interiors, achieving a diversification of space while maintaining the majestic effect typical of a church.

The Casa do Ponedo is located in the north of Portugal, precisely between Celorico de Basto and Fafe. It was built with four boulders that constituted the supporting structure. Once inhabited, it has now become a small museum much loved by tourists.

8. The house that looks like a shell

Designed by the Mexican architect Javier Senosiain, the Nautilus House is located in Mexico City and is an example of organic architecture. Its interiors recreate underwater environments, with an interplay of shapes and light, clearly inspired by the Catalonian architect Antoni Gaudí.

9. The smallest house in the world

The house, built in Berlin, is clearly a provocative project that points a finger at gentrification. With the expansion of urban centers, the outlying and public housing areas become fashionable, and this opens the door to speculative strategies that see living spaces shrink and prices increase dramatically.
