Designed by architect Jakub Szczęsny of Centrala, it takes up about 150 square feet of once-unused space, filling the gap between a post-war co-op building and a prewar ex-Jewish tenement with a small kitchen, dining area, a small bathroom — about the same size as an airplane bathroom, bedroom and desk.
Everything had to be kept to the essentials. The formation is a steel cage positioned on two tunnel-like foundations.
