If you came across this building, you'd think you'd stumbled into Toon Town. The outlandish structure looks like a couple of buildings stacked on top of each other.
The lower levels of the nine-story complex resembles a Swiss Chalet, the middle, a colorful child's block toy, and the penthouse looks like a restored farm house. Located in Middlesborough, England, it's the first building completed for a development near the city's old docks called Community in a Cube. Planned back in 2004, it was supposed to include a building shaped like a toaster and an apartment complex that looks like a tower of Jenga blocks, but the crash of the economy stalled everything for a while. Until this crazy thing was finished. And though it's the first in the subdivision, this exciting, unique piece of architecture is so awesome, we hope it isn't the last. [Dezeen]
