In pictures: The luxury nuclear bunker house by SLLB Architects
SLLB Architects’ conversion of a 1950s nuclear bunker in north London into a luxury home has been completed
The site was originally a nuclear bunker built to protect north London’s local politicians in the 1950s. SLLB struggled for years to get planning permission for the Grade II-listed concrete structure as the Mill Hill Preservation Society objected to the Cold War relic becoming a private residential property.
The 921m² family home – which has 1.5m thick walls on the ground floor – is set in 1.5 acres of landscaped grounds in the Mill Hill Green Belt. The highly glazed, open-plan first floor allows panoramic views of the neighbouring fields.
