Sulkin House through a photographer’s lens [GALLERY]

Sulkin House is one of the most distinctive buildings in East London, which is no small feat. Designed by Denys Lasdun and built in the 1950s, it pioneered the open, efficient butterfly layout made iconic by Keeling House in Bethnal Green.

Rising eight floors above Globe Town Market Square, Sulkin House remains a triumph of council housing design. Contributing photographer Yev Kazzanik of Green Lens Studios captured the building’s timeless elegance on a suitably cool afternoon.

Can you help us?

As a not-for-profit media organisation using ethical journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.

If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. Media is accountable to those who finance it. We want to be accountable to readers. Not to corporate sponsors, not to local government. To you. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.

Support Roman Road LDN from as little as £2 – it only takes a minute.
