The Narrowest House



How do you turn a small space into a huge cash cow? Fill it with the most claustrophobic living quarters imaginable, call its lack of width a feature, then rent it out to artists as a living/workspace. That's just what architect Jakub Szczesny and team are doing with the skinny space between an old tenement block and a tower block in Warsaw, Poland. The design allows for a bedroom, lounge, bathroom and kitchen within the tiny space, all accessible by ladder. Read more about to Warsaw design and other skinny houses on Daily Mail. Link

Clever design, but with walls just inches from you on both sides and no windows, it would be like an experiment to see how long one could live there without going crazy. Maybe NASA can use it to train astronauts for long space flights.
