The narrowest house in the world







































The narrowest house in the world has been recently completed. Keret House opened its doors — or door. Designed by Jakub Szczęsny, the Keret House has 14 square metres of floorspace, and has an interior that varies in width from 72cm to 122cm. Visitors have to enter via a staircase that leads to a wooden ladder up through a trapdoor. According to Szczęsny the house wasn’t design to be a proper home but more as an artist studio.
