Fulham Basement Extension

Working as Architects in Fulham, Shape Architecture has worked on 17 basement extension projects in the borough and many more across other London boroughs. A feature of a number of these projects is the use of external glass cubes as a way in which to connect the basement with the ground floor via a feature stair. Our project at Hurlingham Road did this well. This basement extension is in St Dunstans Road includes a glass cube on a slightly smaller scale but still quite striking. The glass cube and stair composition is a clearly expressed feature and as with all our projects was thoroughly explored through a variety of drawings and computer modelling. Walking ‘outside’ to go from one floor to the next works well. Here the stair itself was quite modest. Its setting in a glass cube provides the drama.
