Retrofit Basement – Richmond, London
This family home has doubled in size, with the addition of a light, bright and spacious subterranean floor. The use of lightwells and ceiling windows has transformed this period property into a large modern home.
Hidden underground is an amazing 100m² of additional living space. With a ceiling height of 2.6m, the floor to ceiling windows ensure natural light floods in. It is hard to believe that this area has been created underneath the original property. We were appointed to create a new living area to include an office space, family bathroom, media room, playroom, utility room, a guest bedroom and a storage area to house additional utilities.
The ceiling of the original hallway was replaced with roof light windows to create a sense of space and airiness. The light streams in from the hallway, through the glass staircase and enhances the already bright basement area which has additional natural daylight from the newly built lightwells.
