This semicircular abode doesn't look like your typical prefabricated house, but it's a prefab indeed and can be disassembled and relocated like the best of them. But why would it want to? As is, the two-bedroom retreat, named "Arca" and designed by São Paulo-based studio Atelier Marko Brajovic, blends in almost too perfectly with Atlantic Forest, the Brazilian rainforest it calls home.

Constructed mainly of metal on the exterior, the hideout puts a modern spin on the country's indigenous dwellings, offering timber walls, open spaces, and a full-equipped kitchen and bathroom. In the day time, reflections on the glassy facade serves as great camouflage. At night, well, it could get a bit scary.
