This little London house, situated in what used to be an alley, is only 7.5 feet wide. So the architects tasked with designing an extension to the home faced a unique challenge — how to bring natural light into a long, narrow building with only a little space for windows on either side.

Faced with this unique dilemma, the designers (from London firm Alma-nac) came up with a unique solution: an addition to the back of the home with a dramatic sloping roof, pocked with skylights that bathe the inside rooms in light. There's also a skylight over the stairwell, which allows sunshine to filter down to the lower floors during the day.

This little sliver of a home now includes a study, a separate dining area with access to the garden, and four (yes, four!) bedrooms. And all that fits in 7.5 feet.

Post-renovation, the home has a brightness and a spaciousness that belies its small size.
