The ‘Upside Down House’ – a house that sits on its roof while all the furniture is stuck to the ‘ceiling’ – is the brainchild of Tom Dirse, CEO of Upside Down House UK Ltd, built to provide an inverted photo opportunity.
“We want it to be as realistic as possible so when you take these photos, you feel like you are in somebody’s home, you are a visitor,” Dirse said.
Visitors can be seen standing on the ceiling holding up the furniture, looking out of the window or diving into the toilet, all providing fun, creative photographs for sharing on social media.
“You are going to have adults holding the kids up, aren’t you, and them holding their legs,” said one female visitor to the home. “That’s going to be really funny.”
The company now has four houses in total. The first homely attraction was built at the end of 2018 in The Triangle in Bournemouth, another seaside resort on the southern coast of England.
The other two structures are in Lakeside, Essex and Adventure Wonderland in Dorset.
The official website states that the houses change with the seasons, both inside and outside, with “a snowy house, inverted reindeers, colourful lights and a different interior during the festive season.”
The Brighton house with its beach lodge theme is situated between the town’s British Airways i360 observation tower and the bandstand.
