But really, how hideously bizarre can a house design really be? Scroll down to check out the list of outrageous examples below, and let us know in the comments if your house is even uglier!

  1. At long last, the reat of the world finally gets a glimpse of DeBeers’ legendary diamond vaults. These ground-floor structures contain massive mirror mazes all the way to the sub-sub basement. The mazes are to confuse would-be diamond thieves.

    More pictures, please! What lies below the mirror mazes? Laser traps? Oompa-loompas? Dragons?! Rudolph Giuliani in drag???

  2. i live in belgium, and to be honest.
    there are horrible houses like this in almost every street. we have the craziest window ideas.
    the worst part is that most people find this perfectly normal…

  3. I am also from Belgium and there is a tv show called “iedereen beroemd” (which means everyone famous). The guy who takes the photos goes to the people who live in the houses and asks them if he can put their house on the page. The face those people make when they hear the name of the page is actually really funny.

  4. Not all of these are ugly – some are smart and striking. Others just strike you in the mouth or brain. But I have a question –

    Flemish/Dutch speaking Belgium, French Belgium, German Belgium, Romany, where the heck are these?

  5. Clearly they don’t have HOAs, so they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.

  6. i love these places! the boring, thoughtless, garish, McManion architecture in the US is the truest abomination!

  7. I kind of like this array of homes. At least it gives one pause to look at these homes.

  8. Many of those aren’t really ugly, just breaking expectations and being different. I’m not sure if this is a virtue by itself.
    The others, however, are ugly.

  9. the only angle carpenters around here can deal with is 90 degrees. well actually, not even that. and plumb is beyond comprehension.
