Basement Design London

Architectural & Interior Design for Basements

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.

As basement conversion specialists, we have deployed many innovative designs to provide flexible basement spaces that maximise room space, minimise hallway space, and always give a natural sense of place.

We assign great importance to the passage of natural light to all new basements, and therefore the design of the light well is crucial. It’s not just about looks; it’s about making sure your underground spaces feel open, bright, and adds to the overall living experience.

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 construction will work together with the existing house, ensuring perfect integration that respects the heritage and character of the original structure.

At OLBC, we understand the history and unique architectural features of London properties. Our expert team of basement designers work hard to ensure that our clients maintain the existing charm of their property across our finished projects, preserving the essence of London’s architectural heritage while incorporating modern functionality and style.

As basement construction specialists, we are constantly developing new ways to link the basement extensions, 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, creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces for a holistic living experience.

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 London basement conversion company will work to ensure that your visions are exceeded.

Each house and garden is carefully assessed for its potential, then a design is created to maximise the light to the basement and connection with all the surroundings. This ensures that every living space is not only practical, but comfortable and integrated with its surroundings.

The end result combines clever use of light and space with the highest finish quality and seamless connections. Our approach not only adds value to the property but also reflects our dedication to modern living, where every square foot is designed with purpose and style, setting new standards in construction and design excellence.
