Looks like a built-in bus stop
Hopefully the mask will protect it against homesickness.
Please restart Windows
Explanation- window tax? Divorce half way through build? Hoping for early legacy? Lost 7/9ths on a bet?
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
Waiting for a few ambitious contractors to start playing Tic Tac Toe here
Daylight is overrated anyway
When the battle between the left wing and the right wing got ugly.
Stuck in the middle with you.
My house is your Picasso
Tell the truth - someone's just hoping hoping to get a Banksy on it and make a fortune!
When the architect did the drawings in Word.
Fantastic Art Wall, get your spraycans
The roof, the roof, the roof has expired
That crooked window is what is bothering me the most.
In the UK we have listed buildings....this looks like a listing building
Looks like an optical illusion indeed! Is it?
I never knew Picasso designed houses..😳
This makes me dizzy.
Clients asked architect to design a home that would match their mailbox. Well done!
They need to be careful with strong winds from the sides
For narrow minded people?
Not everyone takes quarantine equally serious
It’s like 2 pictures added together
I see a red roof and I want to paint it black...
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
Image may contain: house and outdoor, text that says 'Loading.. 50%'
I should stay inside
I love the ‘eyelashes’ on the tower windows... 😄
3 garages on the first floor, nice!
They have it also in lego !
Cinderella's retirement home?
The architect had a vision (problem)
I think the architect made a spectacle of himself there
Windshield wipers were optional?
That entrance looks like a pressgang for cattle and a door on either side. Please explain.
You have to stay inside but you don't have to throw away your door
When I said skip through the door...that's not what I meant
And use the garbage for social distancing the postman
Somewhat cubist, phallic mailbox.
There's a secret entrance through the container.
By Frank Lloyd Wrong
The statue... The mailbox... It's almost art !
It's like a nuclear bunker they forgot to bury. And just out of interest, is this the front or the back door? It seems more like a fire exit in any case...
Not everybody's great at origami.
That round window in the font door as contrast to the diagonal shapes finishes it..
He had the plans... but one page was missing
The statue of misery
Amazing. I admire his/her nerve though: Someone who unapologetically knows what he/she likes.
Pompeii is demolished by a vulcan. Atlantis by a flood. The Acropolis in Athens by the British. Why, oh, why is this still preserved.
Chrishhht on a bike! Think I've spotted the Venus of Misere!
Stop.... please stop.... and tell me it was all something you made in photoshop....
At.least this was an attempt to beautify the neighbourhood.
Horrible but someone's pride and joy. You have to admit it's well looked after
Crazy that there are sidewalks next to this archaeological heritage.
This house is clearly not finished yet....Must... Add... More...
It'll be nice when it's finished...sorry....I mean demolished.
Interesting how the house on the left is just slightly off in everything.
with an arch-emperor as divider
Everything can be a grotto if you're brave enough.
Something to frighten small children with.
I love how ridiculous it is the owner still leaved a neo-classical part between the garage and the Virgin Mary.
Where is it? I feel an urge for a pilgrimage
Not Jesus Christ, but Saint Mary - of - the - Garage.
In the name of the garage
Four Stogi oh no
This gives a whole new meaning to "colour coordinated".
If this house would only be able to say 3 words... It would be: "please kill me"
The only saving grace is that the bottom left hand window appears to have teeth...
The house would look a lot better with the walls painted in the national tricolor.
My eyes hurt
Go home house, you’re drunk
Never judge a book by it's cover...
That will happen a lot more in the future if we don't act now! Global warming is real! Even houses start melting!
When your house is a penis but you’re not allowed to show it
Nope, this is the penis house . . .
When zombies will invade the world these guys will be the only survivors, and you will be sorry you laughed.
It's a police safe house. On a disclosed location:
The ultimate minimalism:
No door, no windows, no roof.
You better not show this to Mr. Trump.
Far better than the ones on the left and the right.
I like it, whatever it is
Reminds me of 'The Scream' by Edvard Munch and that's exactly what I'm doing.
Come on! It's Halloween! Next week it will be back to normal.
Reminds more of Greta Thunberg
Houses that look like Hitler
It looks like one of the Transformers...
Is this house Hitler or Chaplin cartoon?
It's actually Elephant Man
I was going to make the last instalment of Ugly Belgian Houses but there are still so many on the site that are such face-palmers that there will be some more in the future.
