One of the firm’s most recent projects has also been one of their most challenging. The team were tasked with delivering an extension and refurbishment project on a Grade II Listed building in the Westminster area. The building had many unique attributes that had to be retained and worked around as they were key to the specific character of the building, but the team were determined to find a way to meet the client’s need in terms of taste and special configuration. B Much of the project revolved around the basement, a challenging situation in any circumstance. The team were able to integrate the space with the rest of the house, using openings and glass surfaces to add direct light to the room. What was once dark and disconnected has now become airy and luminous. The team’s considerable experience was crucial to finding the best way to transform this underground space into a somewhere light and cosy addition for their clients to enjoy.
