Proportions matter a lot when it comes down to comfortable and aesthetically pleasing houses. Typically, when we speak of desirable houses we imagine them having a more-or-less rectangular or square shaped layout. On the other hand, most of us would immediately turn down the idea of living a narrow and elongated house.

But, what if we told you that such elongated houses can also look splendid and allow you with amazing possibilities for private and common spaces that perhaps a typically squarish house would never provide you with. Don't believe us? Take a look at this 11 striking houses designed by our experts that will certainly change your outlook.
