The Keret House by Jakub Szczesny is a marvel as it measures a restrictive 48 inches at its widest point.

This residence boasts a triangular shape and is located in a tiny crevice between two buildings that tower over the Polish city of Warsaw. Keret House was designed by Szczesny to shelter a single inhabitant temporarily as the living conditions of the space make it unbearable for extended periods of time. "It requires a sense of humor, as you cannot stay long in a place like this" says the architect of the sliver of space.

Despite its small measures, this construction is highly attention-grabbing with its statement on urbane infrastructure. The Keret House by Jakub Szczesny is meant to be a reflection of Warsaw’s metropolis and its complexity in architecture and history.
