7 London Houses We Love

Friday marked the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England. In celebration of the city's finest works of residential design, we've collected seven homes—including one by starchitect David Adjaye and a mind-boggling polychromatic residece by Ab Rogers— in which we wouldn't mind spending a night. 

For photographer Ed Reeve, building his own house had been a lifelong dream. When he met architect David Adjaye, and found the perfect plot of land in London’s De Beauvoir Town, Reeve knew his time had come. The Sunken House, so-named for its excavated site, is a dark, cedar-clad cube in a stuffy part of town, where weathered brick and clay chimney pots are more common than modernist angles.—Max Fraser
