Shape Architecture in Fulham, London

Architects in Fulham

Shape Architecture has built more projects in Fulham than in any of the other London boroughs we work in.  This includes now over 15 Fulham basement projects. We continue to work as architects in Fulham to build upon this large and diverse portfolio and maintain our established and close working relationship with both local structural engineers and contractors.

In addition to basement projects in Fulham our other projects include the whole range of type and scale of private residential work from simple side and rear extensions to pod rooms and internal refurbishment

Extensions in Fulham

We have also designed many house extension in Fulham. These range from side, rear or wrap-around extensions. Such projects add valuable additional space and light and can much improve the connection between the interior and the garden beyond. They are good examples of the maxim ‘Don’t Move Improve’.

Pod Rooms in Fulham

We have also designed many pod rooms in Fulham and these have either been as part of larger basement and whole house projects or extension projects or else as projects in their own right. The addition of a pod room, well integrated into the floor plans adds valuable additional space to a property. Front and side windows and also a roof lights fill the pod room with daylight. They are typically lightweight timber structures clad with slates and can easily be integrated into the structure of an existing building. A pod room will be a well-insulated construction with insulation between and behind the timber studs to guarantee excellent thermal (and acoustic) performance.

Basement Extension Architects Fulham

Our expertise in basement design throughout London and in particular in Fulham is extensive. We are therefore able to point to built examples when illustrating design issues and can show many variations of our Fulham architecture when discussing and planning floor layouts for example. We create basement extensions that are light and spacious and integrate well with the upper levels of the property and the garden spaces beyond.

Shape Architecture Fulham have been involved in our residential basement conversion project from inception right through to the final stages. We have been very impressed by their continual professionalism and dedication to the project. They have been supportive to us, as clients, throughout the project and have always been responsive to what was needed at the different stages. The level of service received has been very personal and we have felt that we were a priority throughout. We would thoroughly recommend Shape Architecture to others.

Shape Architecture – Fifteen Fulham Basements

We bring to a basement conversion project in Fulham the expertise gained in the borough further underwritten by all other basement projects across London that range from basements below gardens to basements to listed buildings and those set in Mews properties.  This range of design and technical expertise added to our knowledge of the planners and planning system in Fulham ensure an efficient and creative design process.  Key to all our basement designs is the use of natural light combined with ensuring that each basement is well integrated into the house as a whole and that the link both physical and visual between interior and garden beyond is well developed.  A common feature to the basement project is the design of the stair between basement and ground floor above.  We have designed very many and these are often distinct design features that link well with the use of natural light and glimpses and views between various spaces.

Our Fees are a Fixed Lump Sum

Our portfolio includes a large range of projects of various sizes

Loft Conversions in Fulham

Pod rooms are often designed alongside loft conversions and many of our upper level extensions in Fulham have incorporated loft and pod room combination.  As with all our projects no matter what the size we will always build detailed 3D models to help explain the design and as basis to communicate clearly with our clients.

The Construction of a Basement:

As architects working in London on wide variety of basement projects the construction detailing and the integration with the structure are extremely important.  Our experience of these projects has been with the same structural engineer and this has made for an efficient and rigorous process.  Likewise the knowledge of how to successfully detail these constructions is improved by repeating the same work on site.

House Refurbishment in Fulham

These projects sometimes include side and rear or pod extensions in addition to the house refurbishment itself. At St Dionis road in Fulham we have reformed a single family home from its configuration as two separate flats.
