Residential – Basement Extension
Basement Extension Case Studies
Basements don’t have to be dank or dingy spaces where you just store old paint tins anymore. You can transform this oft neglected space into a light and airy extra room for your home. This is a great idea in London where space is at a premium and you might not have space for a single storey extension or a double storey extension. A cool basement kitchen in Lambeth, cozy living room in Bromley, underground swimming pool in Dorking, or even a teenager’s haven in Durham are well within your reach with Extension Architecture’s planning, design and project management expertise.
It is likely that a basement conversion in London will need planning permission, whether you are retrofitting a basement or using an existing one. What’s more, the requisite means of escape and light that are generally needed in basement extensions or cellar conversions means carefully developed building regulation drawings need completing by an experienced architect.
Here at Extension Architecture we have decades worth of experience between us and can advise you on all aspects of extending or converting your basement or cellar.
