– [Narrator] Millions of
houses exist in the world. Yet only a small fraction of
those are anything special. And whilst it’s easy to simply
throw money at a property, you’ll be surprised to see
that the most expensive places aren’t always the most
amazing and awe inspiring. (intro) From architects and visionaries
at the top of their game, here are 20 of the coolest houses you just need to know about. Number 20, Glass House. This place was designed
by Sou Fujimoto Architects to let in a whole new
level of natural light. Located on a populated
street in Tokyo, Japan, the only thing this house
is missing is some privacy. The 914 square foot home
was built like a tree house with layers of living
spaces built in throughout. It truly contrasts the
typical concrete block walls seen in most of Japan’s
dense residential areas. Number 19, the Heliodome. This bioclimatic solar
house is seen in Cosswiller in the Alsacian countryside
of Eastern France. The house is designed as a
giant three-dimensional sundial set on a fixed angle in
relation to the sun’s movement to provide shade during the summer months, keeping the inside temperature cool and during fall, winter and spring, sunlight enters the large windows as the sun’s position is lower in the sky thus warming the living space. Number 18, giant seashell house. Designed by architect Javier Senosiain of Architecture at Arquitectura Organica and built in 2006, this
house in Mexico City was inspired by the work of
Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright. Looking like some sort of
seashell it’s a real house built for a young family with two children who were tired of living
in a conventional home and wanted to change to
one integrated to nature. Number 17, Caterpillar House. The use of shipping containers
in residential builds is quite popular nowadays and this one has to be one of the coolest. Created by architect
Sebastián Irarrázaval. This structure is located on a hillside just outside of Chili’s
capital city Santiago and boasts views of the Andes mountains. The property measures 350 square meters and comprises a total of 12
used shipping containers. Number 16, House on the Rock. This unusual build is perched atop a rock sitting squarely in the middle
of the Drina River in Serbia. It was originally created in
1968 by a group of young men who sought a convenient area to lounge in when visiting the river and has unsurprisingly
remained a constant attraction to locals and tourists. It has been pounded by the
nature since it was built but has survived which
is a possible testament to the quality of
materials used to build it. Number 15, Stone House. Most people think living under
a rock is something to avoid but for one Portuguese family
it’s a dream come true. Looking like a big boulder
you’d be surprised to know that this place actually has
a door, a chimney and a window and has become a huge tourist attraction. Number 14, The Glass Pavilion. Dubbed the most minimalist
house ever designed, this house is built in California,
precisely in Montecito. The architect behind this project is Los Angeles Starchitect Steven Hermann, who initially designed
this house for himself. After having second
thoughts he sold the place for an estimated 24 million dollars. Number 13, Modern Razor Residence. Another luxurious pad from California. This 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom
contemporary building has 10,000 square foot of space and was sold in May of 2008
for a mere 39 million dollars. Designed by San Diego based
architect Wallace E. Cunningham. It is made of glass, steel
and white polished concrete. Number 12, the Hobbit House. Built with maximum regard
for the environment and with a cost of only
around 5000 dollars, this hobbit house from Wales which resembles the place
from Lord of the Rings took only 4 months to build. It’s got to be one of the
coziest homes ever built. And it’s construction is
very well documented online. Number 11, The Roundabout House. This is probably just an evolved version of the former house. Like a robo hobbit house, it is located in the Czech Republic and has been constructed
by a 73 year old builder since 1981. It’s called The Roundabout House because it can rise and
fall like a periscope. Now that’s cool. It was built the way it was because the builder got bored from
constructing normal homes and being underground it’s
at a stable temperature all year round. Number 10, The Jellyfish House. Bring some modernity, this 3 story abode is made almost completely of concrete and features and unbelievably
awesome rooftop swimming pool with a see through foundation. It is located in Marbella, on the Mediterranean coast of Spain and is truly the type of place that is guaranteed to impress. Number nine, Keret House. This is the narrowest house in the world but what it lacks in width it
makes up for in uniqueness. This two story art installation was named after Israeli writer
and filmmaker Etgar Keret. The building measures a mere three foot at its narrowest point and
five foot at its widest point. So it’s not exactly built
for the morbidly obese. Number eight, Antilla. This is the most expensive
private residential house in the world. Valued at upward of one billion dollars, it is owned by one of the
richest people in the world, Mukesh Ambani, the owner
of a petrochemical company. Every one of its 27 stories has been built to a different specification. And because of its enormity
just to maintain it, 600 staff are permanently
present in the residence. It’s certainly one of the coolest houses but some shun it for looking
like a huge office skyscraper instead of a house. Number seven, Skysphere Tiny House. This futuristic tower of steel and glass overlooks the rolling hills of New Zealand and was created by Jono Williams, a mild mannered graphic designer by day and unabashed dreamer by night. What started as an
ambitious design concept became real after he ordered
four tons of steel from China. 75,000 dollars and 3000 hours later, the skysphere was complete. Instantly becoming one
of the most imaginative and unusual tiny houses ever built. Number six, Walstrom House. This has got to be one of the most amazing wooden styled houses in the world. Architect John Lautner
designed this incredible home in the late 60s in the Santa Monica area and it is still a timeless
piece of architecture today. The simplicity of its open plan interior is just as awesome as its exterior. Almost like a bird’s nest it has a balcony which is perched in the upper
corner of the living room making it feel as though you’re
wandering through the trees. Number five, The Mirror Cube. Tree houses are cool but this
one which is a unique form of hotel accommodation in Sweden takes it to a whole new level by maintaining a cool,
clean, Scandinavian design. The Mirror Cube is a four
meter wide square hideout among the trees, camouflaged
by mirrored walls that reflect the surroundings making it almost look
invisible from the outside. Number four, The Pole House. Located in Fairhaven, Australia and suspended 131 feet above the beach is this dazzling house
designed by F2 Architecture. It was actually built in the 70s and has since been amazingly restored. To enter the house you’ll have to walk along its dramatic glass walkway which makes it seem like you’re practically
floating to your retreat. Number three, Flintstones House. The idea of this house came
from architect Phillip Jon Brown who suggested to create a house that looked like a rock formation since the land is situated near to the Santa Monica Mountains
National Recreational Area. Unlike most multimillion dollar pads, the interior of this place has irregularly shaped rugged lines to mimic the texture of rocks. Aside from its impressive design, this home also offers a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean, Boney
Mountains and Los Angeles. Number two, Casa Kimball. Completed in December 2008, this is a private beach house, getaway, and luxury rental villa located on the north coast
of the Dominican Republic. Situated on three acres
of pristine property, surrounded by almond trees and coco palms, it also lies on a cliff meaning that each of its full eight suites has an incredible panoramic
view of the Atlantic Ocean. Number one, Waterfall Home. What do you do when
there’s not enough space to build a full house on a piece of land? Build it on a waterfall, like this house in Pennsylvania which was designed by the
architect Frank Lloyd Wright who is one of the most
famous architects ever. This home is so amazing that it was on the cover
of Time Magazine in 1938 and is appropriately called Fallingwater. It was finished after three years in 1939 and instantly became famous standing as a national
historic landmark today. In addition to its subtle exterior which matches its surroundings, the interior is spacious
and also decorated to match the aesthetics of nature. All houses considered, which one would you choose to live in? Thanks for watching and

    I love the Flinstone House, I would love to find a nice cave in the montians and turn it into home, A big rock as a door that no one would ever think that it's a home.
    Store My food in a huge pantry not having to shop for months, and have 2 cabin's near it for a guest one my cabin , the other for family .
    With all the modren convinces .
    When I want to get away just go back to my cave home with a lake by it .
    I'm just dreaming and could never afford it but I would really love to see a cave made into a home , with a older type of setting's , Like a wood stove , Fire place, very tranquil away from the city .

    Which one would i live in. If it was free and i had to live there and couldn't sell it. I would choose the last one because its famous and its surrounded by nature. That billion dollar home is too much but i also love the hobbit home for around 5000 to make it looks great and cozy.
