Fancy Reading: The World’s Thinnest House

The two-level “Keret’s House” is no wider than 122 centimeters (48.03 inches)


This is Etgar Keret, an Israeli writer of Polish roots the first inhabitant of this artistic project of aluminum and polycarbonate house.


Workers adjust a gate in front of one of the world’s narrowest houses, in Warsaw, Poland. The two-level Keret Home is 48 inches at its widest and was fitted into a tiny gap between buildings downtown Warsaw.




The world’s narrowest house


The home contains a "nearly double-size" bed, a kitchen, a toilet and shower, a "bean bag sofa" and a couple of tables. Keret will be the "host" of the home for three years but won't live there permanently. He will drop in from time to time, invite guests, create, etc.

~this is a cute house indeed, but I don't think I can stay here for a long period of time. It's just so thin and I don't like the feeling of being suffocated.
