The world’s narrowest house was conceived and built by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny.
The project was first presented at the Wola Art festival in 2009 and was completed on 23 October 2012.
The house was created as a workspace for eminent Israeli writer Etgar Keret. This unusual space in Warsaw now serves as a temporary base for young creative intellectuals visiting the city.
The house was constructed off-site and installed as a ready-made two-storey steel structure covered in sandwich panels nestling snugly between two existing buildings.
The internal width of the house varies from 122 cm at its widest to 72 cm at its narrowest point. At 9 m tall and occupying just 14.5 sqm, the house has a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen-diner.
The living room is accessible via a remote controlled removable ladder, freeing up the space that doubles as the reception area. The front façade and roof are clad in a transparent material providing enough light for only one window to be required.
