About Shape Architecture Barnes
As residential architects our projects range from all forms of house extensions and the remodelling of interiors, to works to listed buildings and basement extensions. We also undertake larger apartment and mixed-use projects. We believe in the importance of the sketching and drawing of buildings and this approach is fundamental to creative design and key in communicating ideas to our clients.
Suffolk Road, Barnes, London
Our portfolio of basement extensions throughout London includes several in Barnes, such as a below garden basement in Suffolk Road. This project is set largely below the existing rear garden and in part below a rear ground floor extension. It follows another Barnes basement project at Nassau Road, where we also secured planning permission for a below garden basement.
Our client had asked how to bring light into the basement and we were able to illustrate through a series of computer models that a central lightwell acting as a small courtyard garden at basement level would provide a great deal of light and a sense of openness at basement level. Several glass panels set in the paving above also reinforced the amount of daylight brought into the basement.
Contemporary Barnes Architecture
Common to all our projects no matter what size or type is the occupation with the use of natural light and the connection between the interior and landscape beyond.
