Houses built on extremely skinny plots are becoming a serious real estate trend in cities with expensive property markets. The Slim House by design studio alma-nac is one such dwelling, clocking in at a mere 91 inch-wide. While some skinny dwellings suffer from feeling dark and gloomy, The Slim House’s interior is flooded with natural light thanks to a series of cleverly-placed skylights.

The three-story home is located on a site that used to be a vacant alley. alma-nac extended the existing property while introducing a sloping roof that compensates for the lack of lighting on the side walls. In order to avoid the feeling of claustrophobia, the team made sure to allow natural light to penetrate the deepest recesses of the interior via skylights.
