This House is so Narrow that You CAN’T See it Unless You Look Closely. So CRAZY!

I didn’t think so either, but after seeing this, I changed my mind! This amazing masterpiece of an architecture was built and designed by Jakub Szczesny and the rest of the Centrala group. Situated between two buildings at the Zelazna St. in Warsaw, this art installation dubbed as the Keret’s House, has an estimated land area of 14 square meters only. Amazing, isn’t it?! And here I was thinking that the Order of the Phoenix from the infamous Harry Potter series are the only one capable of creating a house hidden from watchful eye!

Originally just a ‘crack’ between the buildings on 22 Choldna St and 74 Zelazna St, this narrow alleyway was chosen to be the future site of this seemingly impossible project! Anyone, who knew this alleyway before the construction, would seriously think twice if the project would push through!

The concept was to build a temporary home for traveling writers. Just a short stop to allow them to have place to stay and think.

Upon entering the building, you will have to climb a staircase since the house is raised up on stilts. A ladder is the only option to to get to the different floors. So you better be ready for all of that climbing!

Keret House Interior

The building has a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom. All the essentials of a place to live in! Cool, isn’t it?

The interior is minimal, giving off a clean and airy feeling. Who wouldn’t be able to think straight in this set-up?

Keret House Exterior

From the outside, most people would simply pass-by and not notice this creative structure. The entire building would simply blend in with the two buildings on each side. You should have to be very observant to see this masterpiece!

This place is just perfect for those who are pretty comfortable being alone. But, if you love being with people and is claustrophobic, you may as well look for another place to stay.
