A Peek Inside the World's Skinniest House

Last week, we got the news that Polish architect Jakub Szczesny completed the Keret House — also known as the world's skinniest house — as an art installation for writer Etgar Keret. This week, we finally have pictures of the interior!

The Keret House is deemed too small to be a legal full-time residence in Poland, so it is currently managed by the Foundation of Polish Art as a week-long artist residence. Keret is the first inhabitant, and his extremely short stories inspired the concept for the home.

The 2-story structure measures 4 feet wide, 33 feet deep, 30 feet tall, and sits 10 feet off the ground. It's disconcerting to be able to reach out and touch both walls with your hands, but at least the semi-transparent plastic roof adds a bit of airy-ness to the micro space.
