LB 01 DAVID ADJAYE mole house
The new Long Books collection presents a single project by a single architect in a special contemporary graphic design format that distinguishes it from other collections the magazine publishes. Each instalment will document works of different scales and formal contexts.
This unique selection of projects which establish new paradigms in architecture begins with David Adjaye’s Mole House.
The derelict property in the London borough of Hackney, made infamous by a landlord who incessantly tunnelled underneath it without a permit, was completely renovated by the architect as a three-storey live/work space that also serves as a single-family dwelling for artist Sue Weber.
