Earlier this year, we told you about the construction of the Etgar Keret House, a residence in Warsaw that would measure a mere 133 centimeters across its widest spot. Now that house is a reality, wedged between two buildings, and we can see what this skinny house really looks like on the inside.

The house was created by Polish architects Centrala for Israeli writer Etgar Keret. In addition to providing Keret with a very tiny foothold in Warsaw, the house will also serve as a domicile for residential arts programs. And this is what the young writers and artists who stay there will have for inspiration.

America has the largest standards for homes, by a very long shot, in the world. We all know about Japanese city living, but in Europe - the UK in particular, thanks to the industrial revolution - an entire flat would fit inside what many Americans think is a lounge. Kitchens in particular are ridiculously enormous there. It's a strange thing that people don't think about. I lived in a flat that was 1 room, with a cupboard off the side that had the toilet and a door. Kitchen and shower were just there in the corner. And it suited me just fine. You don't need space to live if you're childless, and you need only a bit more if you aren't.
