If you’re looking for a home with a lot of space, you won’t find that here. In the crack between the buildings on 22 Chłodna St. and 74 Żelazna St., Jakub Szczęsny designed an art installation entitled Etgar Keret’s House, which will become the narrowest house in Warsaw, Poland, and potentially the world. The home’s interior will come to 133 centimeters at its widest spot. The home is currently under construction and is hoped to be completed by June 2012.
The home includes a bedroom, lounge, bathroom and kitchen. At just above 50 inches wide, the home is so narrow that the builders decided to opt for a ladder instead of a traditional staircase.
The design is similar to the Parasite Office in Moscow, in which the architects design an office that appears to be floating between two buildings in a tight urban space.
