With land in cities at a premium, skinnier houses are becoming more popular. But they also bring some design challenges. So, how do you create a sense of space in a building just 2.5 metres wide? Japanese studio, YUAA Architects managed it by removing most of the internal walls which created an illusion of space. The four-story building is little more than a slither, sandwiched between two houses, but the designers clever used split levels on each floors to create different areas without the need for walls.
Skinny houses have also become increasingly popular, with recently completed projects including a 3.4M house in Osaka and a 2.3M wide house in London.
