This ultra narrow urban home by Pitman Tozer called the ‘Tiny London Home’ demonstrates the value of space and how it’s maximized in crowded cities. In this particular case, Tozer consumes the small gap between two houses that measures less than eight feet wide. The house is surprisingly spacious and full of light due to stacked rooms that cascade from the top floor to the bottom.

The house fits into an alley way with narrow street frontage and a wide garden in the back. However, this humble abode accommodates four bedrooms suitable for a family. The bedrooms start wider at the bottom and get more narrow toward the top. The interior is stunning with a light wooden spiral staircase, where bottom level opens up onto a spacious courtyard and the upper level canopies over top. Sliding glazed walls allow for a seamless transition from courtyard to interior.
