Basement Extension and full house renovation
When you have found the perfect house and then find your family is just about to grow it is time to find more space.
It is relatively easy to knock down a wall or add an extension to get more or bigger spaces but making them feel a natural part of your home requires an understanding of the dynamics at play. Here the key factor was recognising the customers need for separate yet interconnected spaces, so it was when the architect proposed removing an area of the ground floor to link the kitchen with the playroom that the project really came to life.
The customer bought this house with the intention of doing a complete refurbishment as it was very dated and poky. But on discovering his family was about to get significantly bigger he realised he also needed to find quite a lot more space.
The answer was to excavate the basement, so the very small cellar was extended to create a bedroom, bathroom, utility room and large playroom. A wall of specifically designed cupboards was built to house the toys, t.v and other paraphernalia enabling the room to be transformed when required into the perfect place for big screen viewing.
