In a dystopian future not so far, far away... This home comes equipped with a "water roof" that cleverly captures natural light from above and transports it to the basement. Great for the modern day superhero looking for a batcave in the 21st century. 


creative house built in jungle in Indonesia

Still only a concept, but this over ocean home in the cliffs of Victoria would add a flutter to your stomach. Expansive ocean views take on a whole new meaning.

Hope you enjoyed checking out some creative homes from around the world.
