“Keret House”, planned by Jakub Szczesny, will be the narrowest residence in Warsaw. The triangle-shaped house spans three levels and is suspended between two existing buildings above the alley below. The total habitable space is 14,5 square meters.

Why it matters

This project proves that any space can be transformed into a habitable residence. In tough economic times, does this demonstrate how we can reinvent spaces to make them useful homes. What does this mean for the demands on home furniture and furnishings to find innovative space-saving solutions?

Bed trials in the middle of your journey

Ikea has created a pop-up hotel on the French highway’s most crowded rest area. During the month of July (most of the French summer holidays), travellers will be able to stop in the middle of their journey and get 20 minutes of sleep on an IKEA mattress while their kids are watched by coordinators. They can then have a look at a collection of IKEA mattresses on display.
