Narrow House designed as a prototype for building on small plots

The latest instalment of our Dezeen x MINI Living series features an extremely narrow house designed for a 3.9-metre-wide plot in Brooklyn.

Designed by New York studio Only If Architecture, the house will make use of an unused plot of land between a pair of apartment blocks in Brooklyn.

Only If co-founders Karolina Czeczek and Adam Snow Frampton designed the house to be their family home and hope the design will become a prototype “for how to infill overlooked parts of the city”.

The house, which is currently being built on a plot that is 3.9 metres wide and 30 metres long, is designed to optimise circulation and daylight.

The architects have eliminated corridors and walls through a split level configuration where each floor has a single room to serving different functions such as living, sleeping and eating.
