Basement and full house renovation in Greenwich
We are in love with our new project! We created a new home for a family with two small children.
The house has three floors plus the basement.

Early Victorian with Georgian infuences
The property is early Victorian, probably built around 1840, with clear Georgian influences in the design, and is located in the Ashburnham Triangle Conservation Area.
The planning permission process required in-depth conversations with the local authorities, around the proposed solution for the rear extension.
In the end we got permission to create a fully glazed rear extension that became the studio room on the ground floor.
We put a lot of extra care during the construction works.
In the basement we created an open-space kitchen and living room, plus the game and family room at the back.
We installed a resin flooring in the basement, a type of material which is extremely sensitive to humidity and is very delicate as well.

The game and family room at the back of the basement has an entire glazed wall with bifolding doors that open on to the back garden.
Other details in the basement include a crittall wall along the staircase to the ground floor and bespoke furniture.

All the windows are new and in line with planning conditions for the conservation area.
