We’ve all been trying to imagine: just how skinny is Etgar Keret’s Ermitage house in Warsaw, Poland? Literally wedged between two buildings, the studio is one of the most talked about tiny homes on the web. Designed by Jakub Szczensy of Centrala as a tribute to Keret’s family who died during the WWII Holocaust, the project also has a humorous side. Step in for photos and a bonus cartoon at the end which briefly outlines the origin of this crazy idea.
The house is so skinny you can hardly see it squeezed between these two larger buildings.
The image on the left of Etgar Keret was taken by Bartek Warzecha and came from the writer’s official Facebook page.
This is the westward side of the home. Notice the grid panel that allows natural light and ventilation to penetrate the interior.
The door almost seems wider than the house, which will be used as a studio for invited guests – young creators and intellectualists from all over the world, according to a statement from the design team.
“The residential program, conducted in the heart of Wola, is supposed to produce creative work conditions and become a significant platform for world intellectual exchange.”
