‘Keret House’ – the world’s narrowest house, in Warsaw, Poland designed by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny of , Built between two existing structures from two historical epochs, the narrow infill is more of an art installation that reacts to the past and present of Warsaw. Although the semi-transparent, windowless structure’s widest point measures only 122 centimeters, it’s naturally lit interior doesn’t seem nearly as claustrophobic as one would think.

The Keret House will serve indefinitely as a temporary home for traveling writers, starting with Israeli writer Etgar Keret.

  1. Perfect!! How do you know about this place? It’s really fantastic. :)
    Many times on walks in the Village, we have marveled at the narrowest house in NYC, that of Edna St Vincent Millay. Link here about its recent sale, and some pictures too. Not as tiny as Keret though… nope, not by a long shot. shttp://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/08/15/new_york_citys_narrowest_house_sells_for_325_million.php
