The Upside Down House

When we think of home, the word that usually springs to mind is "cozy." But when we caught a glimpse of this one, all we could manage was "disorienting." Nonetheless, the upside down house, which opened last week, is definitely worth a visit. We'll take you inside, below the jump...

Located on the northern German island of Usedom, the family-sized house was designed by Klausdiusz Golos and Sebastian Mikiciuk for the Edutainment exhibition company.

The interior plays out like a practical joke, with chairs, tables and carpets stuck to the ceiling, and although the house is safe, visitors have reported feeling dizzy.

Mikiciuk said nobody would inhabit it permanently and it was meant purely as an exhibit. "We didn't do it for a reason. We just wanted to do something different."

This isn't the first time we've spotted upside down design -- check out Viktor & Rolf's Milan boutique for more inspiration.
