Design Tuesday: 6 of the coolest houses in the world

Houses so awesome, we'd die to live in them. Hey, wait...

If you're going to drop a ton of cash on some property in Malaysia, why not make it as cool as some of these gems from around the world? It'd probably do wonders for your resale value, too.

See this nice, open house by Robert Konieczny at KWK Promes? Located in Warsaw, Poland, It's called the Safe House, which is very apt seeing as it should even be able to surive a zombie apocalypse. Food and drink notwithstanding, of course. That's because it's able to seal itself up with concrete and steel, forming an impenetrable cube that's only accessible via drawbridge.

Shuffle things around

Modular homes are amazing, and none more so than Gary Chang's 344-square foot apartment in Hong Kong. Built with space that transforms according to your needs, this tiny wonder actually contains a full kitchen, guest bedroom, library, dining room, laundry room, spa, bathtub, and even a wall-sized movie screen within its four walls. Talk about making the most of what you have, right?

But you can't see me. Not in the Mirror House in Holland by Johan Selbing, anyway. Made in collaboration with designer Anouk Vogel, the house is covered in two-way mirrors, making you feel feel like you have tons of open space in your house while maintaining a sense of privacy. The best part is that it might even seem invisible from certain angles, Predator camouflage-style, and all those reflective surfaces could help keep the heat out, too.
