Robert Hutchison and Tom Maul founded the architectural firm Hutchison and Maul in 2001. The firm is based in Seattle, also home to their creation, the Upside-down House. While the name of the home may immediately conjure ideas of furniture on the ceiling and upward-dripping faucets, it’s not quite so awesome.
The Upside-down House puts private spaces like bedrooms on the bottom floor and public spaces like the living room and kitchen on the top floor. This is ‘upside-down’ compared to the traditional home form. Okay, that’s cool. But how about a rug on the ceiling just for kicks?
