Austria's Upside Down House Tourist Attraction

The Upside Down House in the western Austrian village of Terfens fits its name inside and out. Both the exterior and interios are completely upside down. Designed by Polish architects Irik Glowacki and Marek Rozhanski, the house is opened to the public this month and includes among its rooms an upside down garage, bathroom and kitchen.

Others have tried to make similar upside down creations but many of these involved putting furniture on the ceiling. But this house is truly upside down including the house's foundation. This is not the first time this type of structure has been built. Sakasa, a restaurant in Japan, is upside down complete with inverted fixtures and sign board. In Orlando, Florida an upside down laboratory at WonderWorks is a popular visitor attraction. The Tibetan-style mansion called the House of Katmandu on the island of Majorca is also a popular tourist attraction.
