What Houzz contributors are saying:

This long, bar house features sliding glass doors on both sides that bring fresh air into the different spaces, just as light enters the house. An added benefit is the view of the river (to the left of this photo) that is available to every room in the house.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Reasons to Love Narrow Homes
Ventilation. Narrow layouts offer plenty of natural ventilation opportunities. The architects have used sliding doors to maximize ventilation in the riverfront-site home shown here. Openings opposite one another take advantage of the physics of natural convection, drawing cooler air into warmer spaces, and the slender room dimension means the space is ventilated quickly.

Long, narrow homes can leverage their flanks to act as efficient collectors of solar energy. The local climate will dictate how you’ll want to position your windows. Where I practice in New England, the north-facing walls typically utilize smaller window apertures, while the south-facing walls are more open. In the desert Southwest, the south- and west-facing walls are subject to overheating and require a different treatment.

Light. Quite possibly the biggest advantage of a narrow building footprint is access to natural light. Narrow layouts permit daylight to enter the full depth of a space. Floor plans that are one room wide gather and distribute light very efficiently. A width of 18 to 20 feet (give or take) is ideal, as it preserves a narrow proportion and allows for roughly 3 feet for walking space; 2 feet for built-in cabinetry, closets or shelving; and 13 to 15 feet for living space. Narrow plans ensure you’ll always be within a few feet of a window, natural light and fresh air.
