The narrowest house in the world
- Caroline Kurze
Designed by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny the Keret House in Warsaw is considered the narrowest house in the world. The house was built in a gap between two other buildings. It is a fully functional space in which one can live as well as create. The house itself is 72 centimeters in the narrowest and 122 centimeters in the widest point.. ‘That is why at first it seems that the construction of living space within such premise is impossible. Keret House is to contradict that false image, simultaneously broadening the concept of impossible architecture’, says the architect Jakub Szczesny.
