New York and San Francisco’s micro-apartments are out; Poland’s tiny house is in!

Wedged in an alleyway between two apartment blocks, the ‘world’s thinnest house’ already opened this Sunday in Warsaw. The triangular abode is 33 feet long and 5 feet wide at its widest point. In some places it narrows to just 3 feet.

According to “tiny house” architect Jakub Szczesny, his output contains all necessary amenities such as a micro-kitchen, mini-bathroom, sleeping cubicle and tiny work area, all accessible via ladders. He also said that there is plenty of light so as to eliminate the fear of the small space.

Its white interior and a steeply pitched roof made of polycarbonate skylights give the house an airy feel. The tiny bathroom features a combined shower and toilet.

Szczesny shared that the tiny house was inspired by the housing crunch happening in many major cities worldwide. The house, which was originally intended as an art installation, is named after and will be lived in by Israeli writer Etgar Keret.
