Basement Architecture and Design

Leading architectural and interior design for London’s basement conversions

Basement design is literally the beginning and the end when it comes to the success of your basement conversion, from initial discussions on how to arrange the space, down to the final interior fittings.We have deployed many innovative designs to provide flexible basement spaces that maximize room space; minimise hallway space; and always give a natural sense of place.

We assign great importance to the passage of natural light to the basement, and therefore the design of the light well is crucial.

Linking the basement to the home

Alongside questions of how the space will work practically and aesthetically, there is also the question of how the new basement will work together with the existing house. Either by carefully assimilating the feel of the basement with the original style of the house, or by creating a complimentary modern space suitably connected to the upper floors, OLBC will work to ensure that your visions are exceeded.

We are constantly developing new ways to link the basement not only to the rest of the house via the main staircase, but also to the front and rear of the property via light wells or by using landscaping techniques. Each house and garden is carefully assessed for its potential, and a design is created to maximise the light to the basement and connection with all the surroundings.

Basement Interior Design

Our design team will lead you from an initial consultation on how you use your home and what a basement could offer, through to the decorative schemes and furnishing of your new basement.We would be delighted to take you to view finished basements to help you with ideas for basement plans and inspiration on how you would like it to look.
