  1. Mirrorcube Hotel, Sweden: This hotel is very private and secluded as its outside mirrored walls make it difficult to spot. Besides, there is a 12-meter-long suspension bridge that can be accessed only if you are expected by the personnel or one of the guests of the hotel.

  1. Holman House, Australia: Inspired by Pablo Picasso’s “The Bather,” this 3,500-square-foot house was completed in 2004 and won the Wilkinson Award in 2005. The mastery of space is at its best, the spaces being divided so that each view becomes individual from its vantage point.

  1. The UFO Treehouse Hotel, Sweden: The owners of this hotel are the same who own the Mirrorcube. It belongs to a themed hotel park in the woods of Harads made up of treehouses that were awarded the 2011 Swedish Grand Tourism Prize. Its sleek outer surface and lighting create a sci-fi atmosphere.

  1. Balancing Barn, Suffolk: This hotel which accommodates 8 people and stands on the edge of a nature reserve in the neighbourhood of the historic towns of Walberswick and Aldeburgh. Its striking design is in obvious contrast with the quaint English country cottages. The building dramatically cantilevers over the scenery, offering views from its oversized windows over ponds, forests and meadows.
