Wimbledon Basement Extensions
Shape Architecture has now worked on over 30 basement projects throughout London and has considerable expertise in this sector. We have recently produced a brochure entitled ‘30 London Basements’ which describes each project through a mix of photographs, computer models and 2d floor plans. A key expertise in the successful design of a basement extension is bringing natural light into the basement and this is best achieved through a combination of various light sources, ranging from feature stairs, lightwells, roof lights and glass panels. We have a wide range of experience in all of these approaches.
Wimbledon 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.

A great deal of Shape Architecture’s work has been through the recommendations of our previous clients. We work hard to liaise clearly and frequently with the client so we can strive towards creating beautiful and functional living spaces, and this attention to detail and desire to create enjoyable places to live ensures that we can be proud of the number of projects we are approached for based on client recommendation, and we are delighted to be able to call ourselves a recommended architect in Wimbledon.
