World’s Narrowest House

November 1, 2012 | in Architecture

This isn’t official yet but the Polish architect Jakub Szczesny claims to be the author of the narrowest house in the world. The width of the house, built in Warsaw is only 122 centimeters.

The project was called Keret House after a good friend and also the project manager and writer, Etgar Keret. He will live in this house the first six months. The house is located in the heart of the Polish capital. The house is built from aluminum and plastic, and is located in an area which width variates between 92 and 152 centimeters. The narrowest place of the house is only 72 centimeters. At the same time, it is 10 meters deep and 9 meters tall. Using steel constructions, the house was lifted at a three meters height. The first floor contains a kitchen, a toilet, a shower, a sofa and a small table for two. The second floor has a double bed, a table and a chair. The house does not have real windows. The light gets inside through the perforated walls. At the moment, the project got permission for two years of exploitation, but the creators are hoping for a longer time.
