Hampstead P1, NW3
- Full refurbishment of a 70’s end of terrace house including the construction of a new 90m2 basement extension.
- The brief for this project was to create a basement and to improve the living space for an expanding family. The red brick two storey end of terrace house is part of three houses that have a uniform appearance in the Belsize Park Conservation Area. The basement would provide a living/play room, a guest room with en-suite shower room and a utility room. An initial concept was that the basement should be as integrated with the ground floor living areas as possible. To implement this concept the basement area extends beyond the ground floor footprint so that large glass louvers flood the basement with natural light and light-wells provide physical and visual connections to the ground floor.
- Existing built area: 152sqm, Finished built area: 242sqm
- Completed in July 2010
