Interesting places around the world – Hang Nga Guesthouse

Hang Nga Guesthouse or crazy house is situated in Vietnam.

Unusual aspect of crazy house:

It looks like a scary or wonky building. It also looks like a fairy tale castle, it has enormous “animals” like a giraffe and a spider, no window is rectangular or round, and it can be visited like a museum.
It has gained international fame being considered one of the strangest buildings in the world. It does not comply with any convention about house building, has unexpected twists and turns, roofs and rooms.

The house is very weird, with a sort of fantasy tree house theme. Hallways are made to look like tunnels or caves and the whole structure makes you think more of the mother nature creation rather than of a man built construction. Many of the steps are designed to look like tree stumps. There are also several rooms with animal themes.

The house is owned by the daughter of the ex-president of Vietnam, who studied architecture in Moscow.

 

The architect said that he did not have any plans designed for every room, but he rather took an expressionist painting and tried to make the room similar to the painting, hiring local handcraftsmen for this. That is why the room look like there are trees and plants growing inside and each room has a certain theme, named after an animal. There is the tiger room, where you will see the red eyes of a tiger on the wall, the kangaroo room that has a fireplace in the kangaroo’s belly, the eagle room and so on.

The Crazy House  is created by eight local workers to transform the blueprints ( paintings not architectural plans) into a work of art.
Everything of the crazy house is sculpted by hand, even the furniture, because it has to fit into the nooks of the rooms without a strait line.
