Sometimes, it feels good to experience the world in a whole new light. To see things the other way around. One house on an island of Usedo in Trassenheide, Germany, was built to provide a new perspective.
On September 4, 2008 an upside-down house — called “Die Welt steht Kopf,” which translates to “The World Stands On Its Head” — was built as a source of German tourism. The architects, Polish partners Klaudiusz Golos and Sebastian Mikiciuk designed the house as part of the project, “The World Upside Down.” The project allows visitors to see everyday items in a completely different way; not only is the exterior upside-down, but so is everything inside, including the rooms, the furniture and even the accessories and decor. The experience of exploring the interior is disorienting, daunting and highly fascinating — almost as if you’re a fly on the ceiling.
The Cape Cod-style house was built on a steel frame because of the large amount of weight on the roof poking into the ground. The only thing that’s not upside-down are the stairs, so that visitors can reach the ground floor — which is really the attic.
This house is almost as crazy as the thinnest apartment in the world, located in Poland, that’s three feet wide at its narrowest point.
Check out the photos below that document the workers putting finishing touches on the house — and watch the video below to discover what it’s like to wander around this upside-down home.
I’m blown away by this level of artistry, creativity. If you agree, please SHARE this home with your friends on Facebook!
This fascinating upside-down house was designed for a special exhibition in Trassenheide, Germany and is open to the public. It was completed in 2008, and visitors flock to the home to wander around its crazy interior…
Here, a worker attaches a faucet in the bathroom. As you can see, everything inside the home is also upside-down! So no, you can’t use this toilet.
“The world stands on its head” is the official name of this project. The house is the brainchild of Polish architects Klaudiusz Golos and Sebastian Mikiciuk.
Workers attach a bowl containing squash to the dining room table, by drilling upwards. Because everything is reversed, the home must be accessed through the attic.
The creators and workers spared no expense when it came to the home’s detail. While there are more upside-down houses scattered throughout the world than you’d think, this one is just as upside-down on the inside as it is on the outside!
Everything in the kitchen is upside-down. The only thing the right-side-up is the stairs, because the visitors need to go up them to reach the ground floor.
