Rumah Terbalik Di Sabah

What to see in Sabah

Rumah Terbalik Di Sabah is best described as an otherworldly upside-down home. Billed as Southeast Asia’s first, the 1,500sqft compound looks like its neighbours traditional Sabahan homes, but the house, car and even a wheelbarrow leaning against the outdoor wall are all flipped over.

Designed by Alexander Yee, a look into this topsy-turvy home is like stepping into the pages of Alice in Wonderland, with sofas, ashtray, books and the TV in the living room, the beds and dressers in the bedrooms, the microwave, stove, tables and chairs in the kitchen all stuck to the ceiling.

Good to Know

Similar to Germany’s ‘The World Stands on its Head’ upside-down home, Rumah Terbalik Di Sabah (Upside Down Home in Sabah) is a childhood fantasy come to life. The compound is reminiscent of an amusement park: there is even a carport with a sedan stuck to its ceiling.

Yee’s primary purpose for building the home was to ‘call attention to the long-term impact of unbridled development, which has the potential to turn the world upside down’. The RM500, 000 project took only six months to complete and since it was opened to the public, it has quickly become a popular tourist attraction in Sabah.
