Unique houses have managed to gain a lot of attention on social media for several years now. Before Hongal’s camera-shaped house, another unique building in the shape of a toilet seat had amazed thousands of people across the globe. According to the records that exist, the house is called ‘Haewoojae’ which means that the house is satisfying for an individual’s anxiety and is built in Suwon that is 46 kilometres south of Seoul back on November 9, 2007.
The sanitation activists in South Korea had marked the beginning of the global toilet association by ‘lifting the lid’ of world’s first toilet-shaped house. However, the exploration of unique houses across the globe does not end here, there are buildings in shape of aeroplanes and also a bioclimatic solar house. There are also hundreds of unique tiny houses with high-tech appliances, fascinating people over the years.
