Basement Contractor
Room Below

Our clients purchased a substantial detached house in Putney in need of major renovation which included a retrofit basement to be situated partly to the rear of the house and partly under what was to become the rear patio. Room Below were appointed as Basement Contractor. The Architects were Icewit Design and the Consulting Engineers were Peter Dann Consulting Engineers Limited.

The basement comprises an entertaining and play area, utility room, wine store and wc.

Our clients refer to this as a labour of love, but the end result is a stunning contemporary treatment which retains much of the original character. The basement has two lightwells and sliding/folding doors which when open allow the lightwells to become part of the basement.
