|:||A derelict house in London that had tunnels dug under it by the infamous Mole Man has been restored and adapted by architect David Adjaye for the artist Sue Webster. Adjaye's studio Adjaye Associates has transformed the abandoned building, which sits atop a labyrinth of filled-in tunnels, into a live-work space for Webster. In homage to the Mole Man's legacy, Adjaye Associates has built multiple entrances and exits to Mole House. The three-storey house sits on a triangular plot, with two doors accessible from the road and driveway leading to the main house or the studio on the lower ground floor. Steps also lead from the main house to the front garden, providing access to the studio and sunken back garden. The studio also excavated it below street level and gave it a basement extension – with planning permission this time. Images of Mole House, designed by Adjaye Associates, taken in 2020.|
