* Which brings us to Hogwarts from ''Literature/HarryPotter''. Staircases that move, walls pretending to be doors and vice versa, and the Room of Requirement that becomes whatever is needed by whomever's nearby. It is also implied that the entire castle has magically grown and changed over time, which handwaves the fact that a 1000-year-old castle wouldn't be anything like what Hogwarts is. The Burrow (house of the Weasleys) is this too, as described by Harry. It is mostly held together by magic.

** The Department of Mysteries is discovered to combine this with MobileMaze in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' for security and due to the nature of the magics studied there.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', some of the houses the titular duo live in are decidedly strange. In particular, one episode has them living in a hollowed-out, upside-down cow carcass.

** In the series' lore, the island of Artaeum combines this with AlienGeometries and, to an extent, being an EldritchLocation. Artaeum is the home of the Psijic Order, a powerful MagicalSociety and the oldest monastic order in Tamriel. Artaeum shifts continuously either at random or by decree of the Psijiic Council. It can also be made to disappear entirely from Mundus.

* The house in the live-action adaptation of ''Literature/TheCatInTheHat'' is bizarre enough on the inside during most of the film, being filled with big rooms and bright colors, but after the Cat's world merges with the house it truly takes a bizarre turn.

* There is not one single straight object to be seen in the live-action adaptation of ''Literature/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'', not even a teacher's yardstick.

* Creator/HPLovecraft: R'lyeh from the Franchise/CthulhuMythos. An architecture so bizarre humans go crazy even when seeing only a small part of it. Note that it's a pretty {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed description. In the original short story, ''The Call of Cthulhu'', the Norwegian sailors who entered the city were pretty freaked out, but no-one actually went insane before Cthulhu himself showed up. Also, the witch house has a door that somehow leans [[MindScrew both to the left and right at the same time]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheSexyBrutale'', the basement consists of [[spoiler:a graveyard in the open air, a giant record player, and a bottomless room full of stacks upon stacks of playing cards]]. There's also a bottomless belfry in the same story as the guestrooms.
