cold room under porch problems
 
My new:) 1950s house has a cold room below the front porch. The walls are cement blocks. There are several cracks and the some of the blocks (MANY) are shifted.
I want to get rid of the cold room but don't know how... Are there any ways? There is no vent but the walls are bad...
I am waiting for help :) Thank you!

Got a picture?
Most people just build a block wall to close it off in the basement.

But if you build a block wall to close the cold room, do you need to fill the space under the porch or is it possible to leave it empty (I'd love this solution :))
I'll try to make a picture and post it. Thanks!!!
