The northern German city of Kiel lays claim to having the narrowest house in Europe. It's not the smallest - because it does have six stories - but at it's narrowest point,this building is only 80 centimeters wide. Some people might be a bit put off by all the stairs but the owner,architect Bjoern Siemsen,says it keeps him and his family fit. And the view of the city from the top is well worth the climb.

This is NOT the narrowest house in Europe. The narrowest one is located in Warsaw,Poland.

Wow! I'm gobsmacked. What a gorgeous design! He really maximized everything he could but oi yoi yoi, all those stairs. They must have great glutes and good knees!

Art Cloud says Edna St. Vincent Millay, of Canaan, NY lived in an 8 foot wide house in NYC--Cary Grant lived there too--not at the same time, though--its too narrow. John Blandly and Felicity Jones like Edna.

Great home!
I love the design, but if I live there, I am not sure with that amount of stairs to climb up and down every day.... Although prob will make the owners fit lol

Good efficient use of space. Simple and airy volume. I design micro housing units these days and it is very challenging. Congratulation colleague and continue your research n tiny spaces to live in.
