David Adjaye's Lost House



David Adjaye's Lost House

This is the 3m pad 'hidden' in central Kings Cross!

Location: 9 Crinan Street, Kings Cross, London

Description: The Lost House is a modern apartment valued at almost 3m here, and designed by the internationally renowned architect David Adjaye.

Modern minimalist is the main characteristic for this apartment design and comes with beautiful pieces of furniture.

The Living areas with luxurious leather sofa, modern home theater with futuristic styles, water garden and the large bed room space would make your live more enjoyable. Its stunning!

It was formerly a loading bay, and inspiring it's name it's tucked away behind wide loading bay doors and frontage - perfectly and very discretely hidden in this very handy location.

A series of light wells, internal courtyards, and skylights harness diffused daylight, while dimmable exposed fluorescents set against intensely colored walls provide moody illumination.

To expand interior living space while retaining a connection to the outdoors, Adjaye enclosed most of the courtyard but carved out three glass-enclosed interior gardens open to the sky to serve as focal points. The gardens decrease in size as one moves diagonally through the plan. The front entry garden features a wood deck and looks onto the street through a screen of black timber strips fitted into the former truck bay. A central garden features a small pond. The top band of this spaces glass enclosure is edged in mirrors to further reflect daylight and the movement of water, visible from within the surrounding rooms. The smallest light court, a pivot point between the kitchen, a bathroom, and one end of the main living space, encloses a small mound of earth and an evergreen tree: a stylized garden. The three courtyards function as their own sculptures, encompassing changing light and weather conditions, Adjaye says. I wanted to look at how light comes into an interior as a phenomenon, not through the apertures of standard windows.
