The Skinniest House in The World is Seriously Cramped
Aug 28, 2013 20:58
The world likes skinny things, but how would it feel about a skinny home? The constricted space and ladders don't really make it an ideal living situation, but the idea is interesting.
Architect Jakub Szczesny designed the world's skinniest home in Warsaw, Poland. The Keret House is a mere five feet wide, and has only 46 square feet of living space.
The house was built in an alley between two buildings. It's got a shockingly tiny kitchen, and a ladder that leads to the main bedroom. But because of its size, it couldn't technically be considered a building, and is instead an "art installation", according to Szczesny.
Visitors can tour the home for a donation of at least 20 Polish zloty (about US $6) to the Polish Modern Art Foundation. The money will go to maintenance of the installation and to artistic activities within the Keret House project.
