Our Projects

Our projects include cellar conversions, retrofit and new build basements, and above-ground extensions, renovations and refurbishment. We’ve transfomed many homes, creating valuable extra space — even in areas where extending traditionally would be impossible.

Residential buildings are not unique when it comes to cellar conversion or basement construction, commercial buildings can benefit too. We were commissioned to undertake a cellar conversion for a children’s charity. Our brief was to make the cellar a bright and cheerful place where the children would feel relaxed and at home.

The carpeted stairway entrance leads into a bright, comfortable, multifunctional space. What was a damp, unused cellar now has new windows and a ventilation system which allows plenty of fresh air to circulate. With calm décor and plenty of cheerful touches added by the client, it’s now an inviting place where children and their families can play games and relax.

There is room for theatre style seating, making the room a versatile space. A retractable cinema screen has been installed for watching movies and additional storage hides toys away once the day’s fun and games are over. The area also doubles as a staff meeting space and provides a private area, when needed.
