The Upside-Down house is a dizzying architectural creation in Tertens, Austria. Designed by architects Marek Rozhanski and Irek Glowacki of Poland, the house is perched on its gabled peak. Visitors can disorient themselves by roaming the interior, complete with upside-down bedrooms, bathroom and living areas.

The base of the home juts unevenly into the sky, as if ripped violently from its foundation.

Inside, the rooms have an anti-gravity effect. As visitors romp around on the ceilings, each personal effect of the home is kept in place. The fantastical family that “lives” in the upside-down house presumably has young children. Toys dot the outside of the house, and are strewn in the family living and dining area. Stools hang at head height,  poised against a counter top.

The kids’ room is any child’s dream, with fire truck bed, painted murals and an array of stuffed toys, all affixed to the ceiling of course. The garage houses a vintage Volkswagen Beetle, with extra tires and a small collection of tools. The architect’s obvious humor for creating such a whimsical house can eve be seen in the bathroom, where the toilet seat is left up, to the eternal chagrin of the home’s fictitious wife no less.

This house in Tertens is not the first upside down project, but will surely be a hit amongst tourists in the area!

    This is crazy. If someone actually lives there, where are the real beds, the real furniture, the real kitchen counters, the real garage, the real toilet?
