Polish architect Jakub Szczesny and his design team at Centrala are testing the limits of how small is too small.

Only 47 inches wide, the “Keret House” – named after an Israeli author and the house’s future inhabitant Etgar Keret – will stand four stories tall and manage to include a bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen.
