In the middle of the bustling city of Warsaw, Poland, there is a hidden secret. It stands in between two buildings, hiding in plain sight. Did you catch it?
The awesome art installation is a home built by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny. He was inspired to create something in an alleyway in between two old buildings. He transformed the space in between the buildings into something awesome and unexpected. He and a group of designers called Centrala built the world’s narrowest house in that alley.
I wish I could live in that little house, no matter how stir crazy I would get.
Most passers by might miss the narrow house, even though it’s becoming a bit of a tourist spot.
It’s called the Keret House. It’s less than 50 inches wide at its widest point.
Jakub built it as a temporary home for traveling writers.
He figured that anyone who stayed here wouldn’t be here long, because of the small size.
“It requires a sense of humour, as you cannot stay long in a place like this,” joked Szczesny.
The house is raised up on stilts and you can only access it via staircase.
To get to the different floors, there is a small staircase and also a ladder.
The main area is similar to a loft apartment (only really, really small).
The house will remain in place for at least 2 years, but it could be there longer on accounts of its popularity.
Its space is entirely functional, but was created to be used by writers so that they could focus on their work.
Jakub and Israeli writer Etgar Keret led the project. If you’d like to find the house yourself, it’s located between buildings at Chlodna 22 Street and Zelazna 74 Street in Warsaw, Poland. What I would give to live in a tiny house…
