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.
