No, this one isn’t for sale, but it is now open to tourists to Tertens, Austria.
Designed by Polish architects Marek Rozhanski and Irek Glowacki, the upside-down house resembles a family home that has been tragically torn from its foundation, possibly by a violent tornado or some other natural disaster. We’re pretty sure Austria hasn’t suffered many major tornadoes—maybe some earthquakes or flooding, probably a few avalanches, but nothing that would flip a home upside down like this. So, we don’t know exactly what the home is supposed to represent, but it’s still pretty cool. Perhaps there is some Austrian version of Godzilla that could cause this much damage…
Anyway, tourists are welcome to venture indoors to become disoriented and nauseous. Upon entry, you are obviously walking on the ceiling, and everything that would normally be at ground level with you is hanging above your head.
For some reason, the exterior looks as if the home was ripped from the ground and sent hurtling through the air, but the interior is completely damage-free.
The bar stools in the kitchen hang, as if untouched by the massive force that supposedly brought this home to its current upside-down state. All the couches and chairs are upside down, and so are the tables, lamps and paintings. We’re not going to keep saying it—everything is upside down!
What we will say is that one of the coolest areas of the house has to be the garage, where tourists will find a powder blue vintage Beetle.
Overall, we have to say that Rozhanski and Glowacki did a pretty good job with the house, but we did notice one thing that isn’t upside down: the blue towel next to the toilet in the bathroom seems to be hanging as if obeying the law of gravity! But that’s OK—everything else is pretty awesome.
