As a practice with extensive basement experience, having now worked on over 30 London Basements we can offer a great deal of expertise in Creating a Wandsworth basement extension. Our recent basement approval of Adderley Grove creates a large light, bright basement with a section also formed below the garden.

Contemporary Wandsworth Architecture
At Almeric Road in Wandsworth Shape Architecture achieved planning permission for a single family house on vacant land at the end of the street. This site had been subject to many failed applications in the past. By working closely with the planning authority we were able to achieve permission for a family house on the site. Whilst we focused on following the key lines and geometries of the existing housing stock and the surrounding vernacular Wandsworth architecture, the design we supplied still provides a contemporary feel and an interior full of light that support our guiding principles.
Wandsworth Architects: Architectural Visualisations and Light Studies
Shape Architecture will work with you at all times to tailor the design for you to suit your needs. We always explore designs in three dimensions, using 3D modelling to help explain proposals and concepts. From this modelling we can create visualisations that not only give you insightful perspective views of your design but also can be used to create light studies, showing the way light interacts within your building, and allowing us to elevate the levels of light in your property. We use 3D modelling techniques for the vast majority of our projects in order to communicate effectively and clearly with both clients and contractors. These models are useful for the design process in many ways, providing an excellent opportunity to produce interesting images through which the client can engage with the project. This in turn is important for our client relationship. Such images can quickly and clearly give an impression of the proposed design that drawings and words alone cannot always convey, and they are a good way of understanding the use of space and sense of light in a scheme, both factors that are important to Shape Architecture’s design philosophy.
Townhouses with Basements in Wandsworth
At Cobham Close in Wandsworth on the site of the old Bolingbroke public house, we designed and built six townhouses. Each has an extensive basement level with feature rear light wells that connect to a series of gardens at the heart of the project. On entry, the views of the garden beyond are immediately apparent. As architects in Wandsworth, it was important that the project would sit nicely next to the existing Wandsworth architecture, and so the external façades follow a palette of materials set by the surrounding buildings, doing so in a clean and simple manner that ensures a harmonious scheme and a pleasant feel to the area. The insides are light and bright and all rooms enjoy good views. At ground floor level, a kitchen, dining and living space has been created with a bridge link over to the garden beyond. The upper level houses bedrooms, and at basement level is a further bedroom, study, utility room and bathroom. The front and rear light wells ensure that the basement regains a light feel. Contemporary fixtures and fittings contribute to the modern interiors, and we are proud of the scheme as an excellent example of the possibilities that new build and basement architects in Wandsworth can achieve given the opportunity
