German Built Upside-Down House

BERLIN (Reuters Life!) - A house that is entirely upside-down opened its doors to the public on the northern German island of Usedom this week.

The family-sized house, designed by Polish partners Klausdiusz Golos and Sebastian Mikiciuk for the Edutainment exhibition company, is furnished with chairs, tables and carpets stuck to the ceiling.

"We didn't do it for a reason. We just wanted to do something different," Mikiciuk told Reuters on Friday.

Over 100 people have inspected the house since it was opened on Thursday.

Upon entering the construction, visitors have reported feeling dizzy and disorientated. Although the house is safe, Mikiciuk said nobody would inhabit it permanently and it was meant purely as an exhibit.

"It was very difficult to make, and we financed it ourselves without the help of sponsors," Mikiciuk says. They were inspired by a range of similar buildings in Spain and America, in which the exterior of the house is upside-down, but not the interior.

A visitor stands in a room of an upside down house in Trassenheide, Germany, Thursday, Sept. 4, 2008. The house was built to enable an alternative view on everyday life for visitors.
