Architecture and beauty go together like hands and gloves; at least you’d like to think so. Why would anyone waste their time building a house that’s super ugly? But Belgian builders don’t seem to think that way and that’s probably a good thing for Hannes Coudenys. A few years ago, the blogger started noticing that some of the houses in the area were total eyesores. So, in 2012, he started documenting these hideous monstrosities people called home on his Instagram account. So, we collected some of the best of the worst and trust us, they’re really bad!The entire neighborhood must dislike this house for the simple fact that it makes them hungry for a cheese platter. We’ll bet it has all the mice and rats in the village confused too. It looks like cheese but it doesn’t smell or taste like cheese. What a letdown!
It doesn’t highlight the natural rugged beauty homeowners come to expect from a rustic style. It looks more like someone tried combining earthy elements with a clean-lined modern style, but they didn’t do a great job at it.
The film was undoubtedly awesome, but using it as inspiration to modify this home was downright a neighborhood fail. We sure hope the owner’s happy here because he’s going to have a tough time selling that house.
There aren’t any windows in the front. How are they supposed to air out the house? The interior must be full of mold. On the bright side, the outer wall can be used to play a round of tennis without needing a partner.
It looks like an airport runway. We can only imagine how many airplanes must have mistaken this for a landing strip. But when you look at it carefully, there’s a reason for the architect’s madness. There’s plenty of living space with wide open spaces on each side for farming.
They could have continued building more floors using the same traditional design as the floors on the bottom. But instead, they just chose to go all modern for the remaining 9 floors, which is just so lazy.
They didn’t just build one but two adjoining pyramids. And while they might see themselves as a modern-day Cleopatra and Mark Anthony, all anyone sees are two pyramids that are wrecking the property value of the whole neighborhood.
These homes are looking awfully colorful; keyword: awful! They are, of course, the colors of the Belgian flag, which is indeed beautiful. But in this instance, an actual flag on the front would have been preferable to painting the exterior of these homes.
This is one home that really sticks out like a sore thumb in the neighborhood. It’s hideous. What’s even more confusing is, where’s the front door? Do people have to walk into that abyss they call a carport in order to knock on their door?
Maybe the architect thought it would be cute to design the windows to look like sad eyes. But what about that odd indention on the wall that gives the side of this house a feline nose and mouth? That’s so creepy.
A tent-like home might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but it’s definitely not a good idea now. Can you imagine everyone living in this house accidentally smacking their heads into the walls because of the sloped walls? Thank you, next!
The architect must have started building this home and then ran out of money before he could finish it. Then again, maybe he did finish the whole house and used invisible paint to cloak the other half.
Well, their wish was granted. Unfortunately, it looks so unappealing. It’s certainly not the Magic Kingdom in this neighborhood. But the real eyesore that stands out is the red paint on all the castle doors.
These homeowners undoubtedly have plenty of wonderful views of the neighborhood. On the downside, the neighborhood can look in on them too. It’s as if the architect decided to add windows of all shapes and sizes just for kicks.
Oh well! Roofs are overrated anyway, right? Maybe they’ll add a roof at some point when they have more money or they could be going for that incomplete look so they can win the worst architect design award.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1… Lift off! That section of the house is so elevated that it’s about to launch itself into space. Only then would this design be cool. But as it is now, it’s just the weirdest house in the neighborhood.
The roof looks like a section of a highway under construction. What was the architect thinking when he designed this? They even added two lean windows near the ground. Was this supposed to be a fallout shelter?
It really does look like someone was using a crane to move a crate when the cord snapped and dropped it on this home. Alright, so it’s not the worst thing we’ve seen on this list so far but it does give neighbors something to gawk at.
It figured since it’s already different from the other homes, it might as well go all the way. So, it decided to curb so anyone walking or driving past it would stop and notice it. Well, guess what, Mr. House? We noticed, and we don’t like you… at all!
It would honestly make the perfect house if the Purge films ever became reality. Those shutters protecting the windows would keep anyone out until the Purge ended. But that mailbox though, what’s up with that?
It’s hidden between two buildings and unlikely to be found by anyone, not even with a GPS. We’re guessing they use the window to crawl in and out. Speaking of windows, how do you feel about the eyesore on the right? There are so many oddly placed windows, our eyes don’t know where to focus, really. Plus, they have zero privacy. It’s a hard pass.
Actually, scratch that. Prison cells have a window with a lovely view of the courtyard. This house lacks windows on the sides. To add insult to injury, the home is painted gray. On the plus side, thieves are going to have a rough time breaking into the house.
There must have been at least one person in the neighborhood who tried walking into this house looking to buy a pair of sneakers. But someone who is afraid of holes would probably find this design horrifying.
They look like two witches about to duel for control of all the enchanted realms. Could the designer come up with something to put in between these homes like maybe a third home? This just looks like someone broke a home in half, twisted the pieces and made them face each other.
But the arched roof looks like it’s better suited for a cathedral. So, we wouldn’t be shocked if people in the neighborhood stopped by confusing this home for a place of worship. Oh, and that crown over the front door is so tacky.
