Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HelloNeighbor'': Even on the outside, the Neighbor's home is incredibly strange, apparently cobbled together from several houses, leading to such things as odd placements of windows, doors that open onto sheer drops, random holes in the floor leading outside, and the trolley car that goes through one side of it.

Added DiffLines:

* Homura's house in PuellaMagiMadokaMagica is more abstract than other houses, with floating pictures and a stark white wall. [[spoiler: WordOfGod confirms this was done to make it resemble a witch barrier, who also frequently make use of this trope]].

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' uses this for the Oblivion Gates and the outdoor architecture in Oblivion (though less so indoors). The Shivering Isles expansion pack has architecture that is [[IncrediblyLamePun often just as sane.]]
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has both Daedric ruins, which are full of weird angles, and Telvani towers, which are giant mushrooms used as buildings.

*** Daedric shrines are designed in some downright [[AlienGeometries impossible ways]].
*** The [[ProudWarriorRace House Redoran]] council district in Ald'Ruhn is situated in Under-Skar, the hollowed-out exoskeleton of a [[GiantEnemyCrab humongous sentient crab]] known as Skar.
*** The wizards of [[EvilSorcerer House Telvanni]] don't care much for actually building structures. Instead, they grow them out of [[FungusHumongous giant mushrooms]] whose growth is facilitated by the [[YourSoulIsMine trapped souls]] of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent powerful Daedra]].

* Gruntilda's Lair in ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' is a castle shaped like the game's BigBad Gruntilda Winkybunion's head, with her hat acting as a tower on top of which the final battle is fought.

** ''[[Literature/{{Celydonn}} The Castle of the Silver Wheel]]''. If you visit various portions of the complex in a specified order, pattern spells associated with them act as magical shortcuts (e.g., if you go through the double arch behind the South Tower after visiting various courtyards, buildings, and gardens in a certain order, you will find yourself on the ''opposite'' side of the castle rather than in the place just beyond the arch).
** Dame Ceinwen's house is sometimes in the Marshes-Between-Here-and-There (as in ''[[Literature/{{Celydonn}} The Grail and the Ring]]'') and sometimes in other places. It seems to be BiggerOnTheInside, although it's hard to tell, since someone inside the house can never quite see all of the room he or she is standing in.

* ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy'' has its share too. One notable example is Ascani, the main city of Bellafonte (sort of FantasyCounterpartCulture of medieval Italy), built almost entirely over platforms sustained by massive rocky columns that are connected using a lot of footbridges and rams.
