World’s skinniest home: at 47 inches wide

Construction has started for a 47-inch-wide Polish house that takes the term “hole-in-the-wall” to another, skinnier level.

It was reported before on the world’s narrowest house, located in a crack between two buildings in Warsaw, which measures about four feet at its broadest and 27 inches at its slimmest. This architectural equivalent of a corset was designed by Centrala’s Jakub Szczesny for Israeli writer Etgar Keret, who will live and work there when it opens mid-October.

Artists and thinkers — hopefully, the non-claustrophobic kind — will stay at the so-called Keret House when its titular occupant isn’t there. Electricity will be provided by nearby buildings; the 150-square-foot house will have a bed, desk, kitchen, shower and an independent, boat-inspired water and sewage system, as well as remote-controlled stairs that can flatten against a wall when not in use. We’re sure that the house would put anyone in a working state of mind, since the frame basically looks like a file folder, and the steel exterior resembles an Apple-designed pill.
