Sunken House
Camden, London

 

The site is currently abandoned and empty, mostly covered in asphalt, with direct access from Lidlington Place. The access gate, facing South, is in poor condition. The brick boundary wall along Lidlington Place is in continuity with the adjoining plots, measuring approximately 1800mm from the street level. The site is surrounded by rear gardens, with the exception of the Western boundary site, which is used as a car park.

The building access is through the East facade: a stone architrave highlights the entrance door, in dark hardwood. On the ground floor, there are one single bedroom, as well as the living, dining and kitchen areas, with direct access to the rear garden. Five steps allow overcoming the difference in level between the interior and the garden. An interior staircase connects to the basement, which is arranged to provide three more bedrooms (two doubles and one single), two bathrooms and a generous plant area. Large roof lights will provide light to all inhabitable rooms, as is confirmed in the lighting assessment attached to the application.
