With the world's population growth dramatically increasing every year and space for urban living at a premium, we are witnessing architects and planners becoming more creative with urban design and utilisation of space.
Classified as an "Art Installation", the hybrid house was designed by Architect Jakub Szczensy for the famous Israeli writer Etgar Keret as a studio and home. Once built, the house will be situated in a narrow space between two buildings that is currently been used as dumping ground by locals. Completion date is planned for December 2011.
Szczensy's utilisation of marine style plumbing technology and use of innovative building materials, creates an compact minimalist open plan living space that takes architectural urban design to an innovative and sustainable level at the same time revitalising a wasted space.
