Inside Swing House, a One-of-a-Kind Interactive Art Exhibit in Camp Washington


The Swing House is a whole-building art project — a freestanding 188os three-story brick home in Camp Washington where owner and artist Mark de Jong has removed the interior walls and upper floors and built a swing right in the middle of the opened-up interior. Made from pine he salvaged from third floor joists, the wing is attached by 30 feet of natural-fiber rope to a metal beam on the ceiling.

There are several ways to visit the stunning space. De Jong hosts an open house for guests to experience the Swing House on the first Saturday of every month. And if you're interested in spending the night at the home, there is a listing available on Airbnb.

Monthly Open House: 12-4 p.m. Second Saturday of every month. Swing House, 1373 Avon Pl., Camp Washington
