While uncommon ceilings for us may entail one made out of glass, an institute in Ladakh shows us how almost anything could be turned into a ceiling.

The Himalayan Institute of Alternatives in Ladakh run by engineer Sonam Wangchuk, who gained massive popularity when Aamir Khan played his role as Phunsukk Wangdu in the movie 3 Idiots, has certainly got quite a few unique creations.

The institute, which describes itself as "an alternative university to develop solutions to the problems of mountain communities," has an addition that seems unlike most others: A car as a ceiling.

Anand Mahindra shared photos on Twitter to reveal how the institute was using a car as a roof to a house.

The top and metal hull of the car is used as a roof, while the rest of the structure is held up with a wall. And this unique roof certainly has amused netizens.

















The Institute also has a lot of more amazing and unique creations. Take for example, an Ice Stupa, and housing made from re-used materials.
