It was conceived as a memorial to his parents' family, who died in Warsaw during the World War II Holocaust. The house was actually squeezed in-between two existing central Warsaw residential buildings on the edge of the former Warsaw Ghetto. Polish architect Jakub Szczesny designed the weird construction, which is still a real house with all the necessary facilities.</p></em><br /><br /><p> Previously:&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/12421287/polish-architect-building-world-s-narrowest-house-between-warsaw-tower-blocks" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Polish architect building world's narrowest house between Warsaw tower blocks</a></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/12421287/polish-architect-building-world-s-narrowest-house-between-warsaw-tower-blocks Polish architect building world's narrowest house between Warsaw tower blocks Paul Petrunia 2011-07-06T12:20:00-04:00 >2012-11-16T16:31:48-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/c0/c02f57b43b33f140c2ee0c6d1629bf8d.jpg" width="306" height="538" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>An alley between an old tenement block and a tower block in Warsaw, Poland, will be the location for the skinniest house in the world. The four-storey home will have a bedroom, lounge, bathroom and kitchen, stretching back nearly 40ft, but instead of the traditional staircase, each floor will be accessed by a ladder. It will take over from the world's current official narrowest house, The Wedge, on the island of Great Cumbrae.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
