archatlas: Sunken House David Adjaye From the architect: The form of this house combines certain attributes of its immediate neighbors. The De Beauvoir Estate is an area of semi-detached villas which have elegant proportions and shallow, hipped roofs. Unusually, for an area of this kind, a number of later workshop buildings have been added to the Victorian fabric and one of these is directly opposite the site. When seen from the street, the Sunken House appears to have the habitable volume of one of the two dwellings which make one of the semi-detached villas and, as such, represents the underlying unit of the Victorian development. But the flat roof matches that of the workshop building across the road and the language of the external openings (fixed glazing and solid doors and ventilation panels) has more to do with buildings of this type, rather than conventional houses.
