In 2009 Jakub Szczesny had an idea about creating the world’s narrowest house and three years later this idea came true, so now Warsaw can proudly present the skinniest house in the world.
The semi-transparent, windowless structure of the house was built between two buildings from two historical epochs: the first is an almost no longer existing brick building representing the pre-World War II city and the second is a concrete apartment building. This plot is 92 centimeters in its narrowest point, 152 centimeters in its widest point and the house itself is 72 centimeters in the narrowest and 122 centimeters in the widest point. Considering these sizes the interior is functional but doesn’t seem as claustrophobic as one would think.
The Keret House will serve as a temporary home for traveling writers and its conception attracts the attention of the media from all over the world.
