Gravity-Defying Upside Down House in Russia

In Moscow, visitors to the All-Russia Exhibition Centre are welcome to explore inside this unique, inverted house, where the ceiling is on the floor and vice versa. Everything within the home, whose name is roughly translated as Shifted House, is completely ordinary… if you’re standing upside down. Ultimately, the cleverly crafted piece of architecture is an impeccably designed space that offers guests a gravity-defying perspective and some prime photo ops.

The inverted space, designed in the likeness of an average European cottage, includes everything from a decorated living room and fully stocked kitchen to a lovely little bathroom and even a garage with a car parked in the driveway. It’s the fact that everything is completely shifted on its head that has attracted so many visitors and media attention as of late. More than just an upside down house, though, it’s a bit of a playground that allows visitors to whimsically interact with their environment.
