The upside down house located in Getorff, Germany is certainly not the first of its kind, but it is still an amazing attraction for the local zoo. Investor Dirk Oster commissioned carpenters Gerhard Mordhorst, Gesellse Splettstößer and Manfred Kolax to build the inverted house.
The house stands on a pointed roof and is reinforced by steel beams in the attic. It stands at a height of 23 feet and has an upside down bathroom, kitchen, living room and bedroom. Inside the house, every tiny detail has been set upside down including the fruit bowl, kitchen sink and even the sofas in the living room. A total of 50 different pieces were screwed to the floor-ceiling of the house. These pieces included a microwave, tables, beds and even pictures (these were screwed to the wall). The heaviest of these pieces was the 100-lb wardrobe, but it too was fixed to the roof of the structure (the floor of the house).
The house has been open to the public since March 2010 and is inclined at a slight angle to challenge the viewer’s perspective. Images of this amusing attraction are shown below.
