Plans to build ‘The Skinny House’ in a small alleyway in Fitzrovia has just been given the green light from Westminster council, and the plans are pretty incredible. The full specifications designed b HOK architects are 1,500sq/ft, and they are managing to squeeze that much into a space that is just 3.1 metres wide, and it is expected to fetch a price of around £2.7m upon completion according to Jonathan Hudson from Hudsons Property.
The ‘Skinny House’ will consist of four storeys, and have a ground level courtyard, a fourth floor terrace(which will have views of Regents Park), an open plan kitchen/diner from the lower ground floor and somehow will manage to fit three bedroom and two bathrooms.
The alleyway previously was used as a path between the now-defunct Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and the main Euston Road, and the residence will be slid in between a pub and an office block.
The approved designs have been praised by architects, planners and estate agents alike, and lay the high price tag on it’s innovative use of space, proposed luxury and the location.
