The entire interior is painted white and electricity is obtained from a neighboring building.
The house has customized water and wastewater technology and is not connected to water systems in the city.
Because of its small size, the building can only accommodate a small refrigerator for 2 drinks. The entrance is via a retractable staircase that, when closed, becomes the living room. Everything can be pushed and moved within the Keret House.
