This is a tall, multi-story house built in a space between two buildings in Warsaw. It is tall, long and bright in the sun, thanks to the transparent roof and ceiling. It has a bed, kitchen, bathroom and study (or at least a writing corner). It was especially important for the architect to keep the home at the maximum width of 122 centimeters, while making it not to feel claustrophobic, like an enclosed place, even though it was so narrow.
The house is situated at the corner of the streets between Chlodna 22 and 74 Zelazna Street, meters away from the bridge connecting the "big ghetto" with the "small ghetto."
The house is full of famous branded electronics donated by sponsors and commercial financiers who decide to give away for free. They do this for advertising purposes and also prove that their products are suitable for small apartments.
The house belonged to the Warsaw municipality and artists from around the world have been invited to stay here from time to time, or rent it for short periods. Of course Keret was the first of them invited to stay there.
Why Etgar Keret? - Beyond his most popular works in Europe, the house was dedicated to the Israeli writer because it was built in the area that was the Jewish ghetto of Warsaw during World War II. This is the same ghetto where Keret's mother lived with her family during that terrible period. She is the only survivor of her family.
