20 Slender Architectural Structures

From Two-Meter-Wide Dwellings to Super Skinny Houses

— March 29, 2014 — Art & Design
Skinny houses don't always have to be uncomfortably cramped spaces, as these architectural examples demonstrate. Architects have managed to work wonders with designs that are no more than a few feet wide. As long as you aren't extremely claustrophobic, these houses could be handy budget-friendly accommodation solutions.

By opening up the interior space and ensuring the rooms within the house aren't blocked off from each other, designers can turn a small space into an extremely comfortable abode. From slender angled architecture to tall skyscrapers, these examples of skinny houses are perfect to demonstrate the unlimited possibilities for what to do with a tiny amount of space. The best part is heating costs won't be as much, since the space is so tiny!
