I'm surprised there's no thread with this topic here yet. So let's make one.

Post photos of modern or any other impressive home you like.

Cube houses (1984) Rotterdam
Almost 30 years old, but still have a modern design. These houses were very controversial in the begin '80.

YTL private mansion,Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia


Paris-based Agence Jouin Manku took on its first large-scale integrated architectural and interior design commission in 2003, when YTL Design Group from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, invited it to design the residence of a Malaysian power family.

Completed in the latter part of 2008, the residence is the ultimate expression of the taste, influence and industrial-scale capabilities of the prominent family whose entrepreneurial activities have shaped Kuala Lumpur’s skyline.

Blenheim Palace (not a royal home). 3000 'country houses' were built by the aristocracy across the country over the years.
