18 of the Most Unique, Strange, Unusual Houses Ever Built
15.Toilet Shaped House (Haewoojae), Suweon, South Korea
Sim Jae Duck, mayor of Suwon and Chairman of the Wold Toilet Association, was born in his grandmother’s bathroom and decided to dedicate his life to healthy ablutions, water conservation and improving global access to clean, efficient and working sanitation. In 2007, he rebuilt his house in the shape of a toilet.
Containing two stories and three toilets, Duck’s toilet shaped house is the only toilet themed house in the world and cost $1.1 million to build. It features a showcase bathroom in the centre and is equipped with rainwater harvesting technology.
Sim Jae Duck died in 2009 and his house was donated to the government, who made it into the “Toilet Theme Park” (a sort of museum). Statues of lavatorial exercises surround the house and tourists can even buy souvenir poo.
