Private Residential | Basement Extension
Nassau Road, Barnes
Shape Architecture’s basement extension in Nassau Road Barnes is like our project in Suffolk Road also in Barnes being largely set below the garden. As a practice we have worked on over 30 basements throughout London and a number have been below gardens including our basement in Windsor to a listed building. We understand the planning issues and have a deep understanding of the design and technical issues associated with basement design below gardens.
The success of this basement project is the way in which natural light is brought into all parts of the basement plan. The design process very much focussed around the use of natural light and the use of 3D models helped inform the design decisions and ensure a clear dialogue between ourselves and our Client. As with our below garden basement in Suffolk Road in Barnes the use of a lightwell is complemented by a series of structural glass panels let into the landscape to ensure all interior spaces benefit from natural light.
