The Keret House will be installed in the district of Wola in Warsaw, Poland, on the small space between the buildings on 22 Chlodna Street and 74 Zelazna Street. The house’s interior will have measurements between 122 centimeters and 72 centimeters in its narrowest area.

According to reports, the house will be a home and a work space for Israeli writer Etgar Keret. It will also be used as a studio for invited guests.

The house does not fulfill any existing Polish building codes. Because of this, the house was given building permits as art installation. The construction of the house is expected to start in September and to be completed in December, 2011.
