If you happen to be looking for a way to make life more interesting, why not try living in an upside-down house? This is just the idea that a Polish businessman, Daniel Czapiewski, had when building one of his houses. His company is known for building quick and simple homes for people in various Polish villages, but his Upside-Down House breaks the mold in just about every way. Situated in the tiny village of Szymbark, he and his builders spent about one hundred and fourteen days constructing this atypical dwelling.
The Upside-Down House took much longer to construct than one of Czapiewski’s typical houses because he and builders wanted to give an enormous amount of attention to detail inside the structure so that visitors would be fully immersed in the sensation of walking on the ceiling of a regular home. Czapiewski’s Upside-Down House is truly a work of art as every last detail is in its place and truly does look and feel like a regular home was carefully inverted and set back on the ground.
And like most great works of art, this one has a message that it wishes to convey as well. Czapiewski has said that the house is meant to be commentary on the state of the world in which he and the Polish people are living in – that everything just feels wrong and topsy-turvy.
