Israeli Writer to Reside in Narrowest House as Link to Past

October 23, 2012 at 8:02 AM

Israeli Writer Etgar Keret to Reside in Narrowest House as Link to Past.

Israeli writer Edgar Keret will reside in the narrowest building in the world, just 4 feet wide, twice a year when he visits Poland according to the website Arutz Sheva. 

The two-story aluminum and plastic house was designed three years ago by architect Jakub Szczesny. 

The triangular building runs 33 feet (10 meters) deep at the base and stands 30 feet (9 meters) tall.

Despite its size, though, Szczesny said that the house “contains all necessary amenities such as a micro-kitchen, mini-bathroom, sleeping cubicle and tiny work area, all accessible via ladders."

The Foundation of Polish Modern Art and Warsaw Town Hall co-sponsored the project, called Keret House, which they consider to be a work of art.

Keret said the project is a memorial to his parents' family who were killed during the Holocaust.
