Polish architect Jakub Szczesny has developed a model of the world's narrowest house, its width is only 1.5 meters. The architect managed to shove a residential building called House Tours into a narrow gap between two multi-apartment high-rise buildings located in Warsaw.
The famous Israeli writer Etgar Keret is the symbolic patron of the project, so he will be the first to receive the keys to the unique housing. The construction is planned to be completed by February 4, 2012.
The writer plans to spend the first month in a narrow house as a full-fledged tenant, after which this non-standard space will serve art as an art studio open to all creative people, designers and artists from all over the world.
The idea of creating an innovative installation came to the author exactly when he saw a very narrow, empty gap between two high-rise buildings. However, there is a bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen located on two floors, which interact with each other via a Swedish staircase.
The disadvantage of a unique space is the lack of space for storing things and furniture, so this concept can only be viewed as an interesting experiment and a unique installation, which will be improved over time.
