These Houses Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Landed In A Magical Place

Will you live in one of these witch house-inspired apartment buildings?

The new year has just started and Halloween is still several months away, but for residents of the Shizuoka Prefecture in Hamamatsu, Japan, it must feel like every day is Halloween.

The cleverly and wonderfully designed buildings in the area will make you feel like you’ve walked into a Tim Burton movie set. It provides a sense of creepiness that one would likely get from watching a film by the renowned director. When you look at it, you feel as if you’re going to meet Jack Skellington from “A Nightmare Before Christmas” just around the corner.

However, these buildings are not part of a Tim Burton movie set; it’s also not an attraction set up for Halloween. It’s actually apartment complexes where people can live in, just like regular houses—except these buildings were made to look like you’ve disappeared into a hole and landed in a strange, magical place. Just check out the photos!

According to the Asahi Shimbun, the apartment buildings were based on a witch house design.

The streets in the area appear ordinary; it has stores and apartment buildings. But these creative structures have all the spooky decors that will fascinate you.

“I want passers-by, not just the residents, to enjoy this fantasy world,” Sasaki said, according to Asahi Shimbun.

Can you live comfortably in a shoe box? This man proves you can…

By

The world is slowly shrinking into a pinprick of what was once sprawling, open expanses, and with the shrinkage comes the difficulty of finding adequate living space to cope with surviving in the rat race of today's modern life.

Most metropolitan cities are particularly challenging to live in, especially with homes, apartments, and condominiums becoming rarer commodities by the year.

One designer discovered a miniscule 18th century hole-in-the-wall space that had been abandoned a long time ago, and created an ultra-comfortable dwelling in the middle of bustling Rome.

Can you create a restful home from 75 square feet (7 square meters) of space?
