** Death's Domain in. The initial hallway is intimidating enough, but several of the rooms along it open up into cavernous chambers filled with books or hourglasses.

** Death's Domain in. The initial hallway is intimidating enough, but several of the rooms along it open up into cavernous chambers filled with books or hourglasses. The "normal" rooms are tiny islands in a see of empty floor; some people only see the islands, and don't have to walk the intervening distance.

* ''[[color:blue: House]] [[Literature/HouseOfLeaves Of Leaves]]''. The [[color:blue:house]] on Ash Tree Lane is this, having doors that open from the normal part of the [[color:blue:house]] to a seemingly never-ending sequence of cold, colorless rooms, hallways, and stairs, just like a ClownCarBase.

* This is true of the Edgewood house in ''Little, Big'' by John Crowley. Due to the building's already-large size and complex layout, it takes a while for people to realise this, which helps with TheMasquerade.

** In one story, it was revealed that lots and lots of floors in the Tardis are made from that futuristic high-tech space-age structural material - brick. There's even something in there that looks like a municipal British swimming pool, circa 1950.

* When ''ShadeTheChangingMan'' moved into a crack in the pavement of Times Square, it was already BiggerOnTheInside. New rooms appeared as the story required, and his son George spend months touring them.

* It's an old joke about housing in NewYorkCity that everyone is always secretly hoping they'll notice a door one day that they [[FailedASpotCheck never saw before]], and it turns out that their apartment is [[FriendsRentControl twice as big as they realized]].

* John De Chancie's ''CastlePerilous'' series features Castle Perilous, a castle containing portals to 144,000 different universes.
* Morwen's cottage in the ''EnchantedForestChronicles'' appears small on the inside, but has a door that leads to a different room every time it's opened. Morwen's narration identifies four specific rooms (a library, a study, a magic workshop and a storage room) and "several" guest rooms, and notes that she can still add at least three or four more rooms before she'd have to add a second door. The door and its rooms weren't an easy project, taking considerable time and effort, but she considers it to have been more than worth every minute.
* The Godmothers hut in MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms The Fairy Godmother]]'' looks like a normal cottage in the woods even from the first few rooms. Then you realize that there really shouldn't be room for two stories, a big kitchen, a pantry, a library, and several other rooms. Then, later in the book, Godmother Elena reveals the true nature of the totally not just a house. It's simply magic.

* The House of the Undying in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', which deliberately invokes {{Bizarrchitecture}} as navigating it is part SecretTestOfCharacter and part VisionQuest. Daenerys first notices this when she finds herself climbing a large staircase, when the building she entered appeared to only be one storey high.

* In TheITCrowd episode ''The Red Door,'' Jen suddenly becomes curious about the titular door in the corner of the office, which hasn't been shown on screen previously. At the end of the episode another, more terrifying door is briefly shown (and never mentioned again).
