Turn the House Around

How do you make a house a home when it's turned up-side-down? I guess the same way you would if it wasn't. This bizarre upside down house was created on the grounds of a German zoo. The roof is reinforced with steel girders.

Local carpenter Gerhard Mordhorst and his colleagues Gesellse Splettstößer and Manfred Kolax put the unusual building together. 'It was a challenge for us,' Mr Mordhorst said. 'You had to constantly think of the mirror image.' They described the job as the 'craziest' one they had been asked to do and found the bathroom the trickiest to put together because of bulky items like the shower.

The 'crazy house' is reminiscent of a home described in Roald Dahl's children's book The Twits. In the children's story a group of monkeys are forced to hang upside down by their owners. They have their revenge by sticking all of the couple's furniture to the ceiling and convince them to stand on their heads. The 'crazy' house was thought up by Hamburg investor Dirk Oster. He will open it to the public on March 30.
