LTS Architects ‘hides’ £1.9m house in Knightsbridge conservation area

  • Comment

Invisible from the street, the two-storey-plus-mezzanine Hidden House has its lower floor at basement level

Created from two former workshop buildings and a retail space, the project involved reworking existing structures and creating a new subterranean living space in the basement. 

The main living spaces are arranged as a sequence of linked open-plan spaces that include a mezzanine study within the roof pitch. 

A new sunken garden and atria provide daylight to the lower level, which contains three double bedrooms, including a large master suite with an en-suite bathroom resting within arched pavement vaults.
