The Upside Down House is a project created by a Polish businessman and philanthropist named Daniel Czapiewski, and is located in Poland in the tiny village of Szymbark. Rather than simply being a bizarre tourist attraction this house, managed to attract thousands of tourists. The house is also meant to be a profound statement about the Communist era and the state of the world. Czapiewski’s company would normally take only three weeks to construct a house, but this one took 114 days because the workers were disoriented by the strange angles of the walls. Many tourists who visit complain of mild seasickness and dizziness after just a few minutes of being in the structure.
This out of the ordinary house was designed for a special exhibition in Trassenheid Germany and is open to the public for visiting. The creators Klaudiusz Golos and Sebastion Mikuciuk say they “didn’t build the house for a reason, they just wanted to do something different”. Unlike Czapiewski’s house (above) where only the exterior is upside down, the Golos and Mikuciuk house has built and furnished every single room. “The world stands on it’s head” is the official name of the project. You will notice in the pictures how every arrangement seems very accurate and how all the main items in a normal house appear upside down in the design too.
