House squeeze

“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?
