A giant two-story camera rises from the grass beside an ordinary suburban home in the hills of South Korea. The Dreamy Camera Cafe is housed in a re-creation of a vintage Rolleiflex, featuring two lens-like oversized windows offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
The cafe was built by a former army helicopter pilot with a passion for photography and vintage cameras, who lives in the house next door with his family. A range of miniature and toy cameras are displayed on the first floor, with a collection of photographs tacked on the walls upstairs. The cafe even has paper towel holders shaped like film canisters.
It may be unusual, but the Dreamy Camera Cafe is hardly the first building shaped like a giant object – there’s a 40-foot-tall milk bottle building among others modeled after food items, and even a house shaped like a toilet.

This happen last year, but we must have missed it on RHU! I noticed the change when I discovered the Out of Control Custy video below was from an Aussie fast food place call Macca's that oddly looked just like a Mickey D's!
From The Telegraph:
The international fast food giant will temporarily change signs at selected stores across the country to the affectionate Australian nickname for the chain, in celebration of Australia Day, which falls on January 26 - a move that is its first such globally.
"We're incredibly proud to embrace our ‘Australian-only' nickname," said Mark Lollback, the company's chief marketing officer in Australia, in a statement on Tuesday.
"What better way to show Aussies how proud we are to be a part of the Australian community than change our store signs to the name the community has given us?"
Thirteen stores will change their store signage this week, starting from the state of New South Wales on Tuesday, the company said.
McDonald's signage will return to each site from early February.
According to a national survey, "Macca's" is the second most recognized Australianism, just behind "footy" for Australian rules football.
Australia is the only country in the world that refers to McDonald's as Macca's and the restaurant has formally submitted the word to the Macquarie Dictionary for consideration in their next update.
The restaurant has said the abbreviation reflects its place in the Australian community, which has a penchant for jocular nicknames
