World’s Thinnest House Is The Stuff Of Nightmares
Claustrophobes, hoarders, and people who enjoy stretching their arms without ramming their knuckles into the wall, meet the house of your nightmares. This is the Keret House in Warsaw, Poland; situated between two buildings, it’s only 4-feet across at its widest point, and a panic attack-inducing 28-inches at its narrowest. The terrifying marvel of engineering came to be after Polish architect Jakub Szczesny walked by what he calls an “appealing cushion of air” between two buildings and decided it would be the perfect spot for a home. The building process was plagued by logistical nightmares, but now that’s it’s finally finished, Szczesny says he’s ready to celebrate: “I’m going to get drunk for the first time in my life.” After looking at this photo, I think I’m going to join him.
What about you guys? Does the Keret House freak you out? Would you rather spend the night here or in a spacious haunted mansion? [NYT]
