A prestigious basement extension and whole house refurbishment in Kensington
Shape Architecture obtained planning permission to return this building from four flats to a substantial family home with subterranean accommodation. The various levels within the building will be linked through a feature stair set against a full height glazed wall to flood the interior with light. The subterranean accommodation will also be filled with light through various roof-lights and double height spaces.
Green roofs are introduced at various levels of the project. Generous hallways set against external glazing ensure that the interior is always flooded with light and that there is a great sense of space. As Kensington Architects with a vast experience of basement conversions in Kensington and throughout London, Shape Architecture has been able to bring a creative and technical expertise to this project.
Work is progressing well on this major high-end refurbishment being undertaken by Rackham Construction, but currently the building is somewhat hidden from view. ‘Behind the scenes’, GA are involved with the substantial mechanical and electrical works including installing a Heatmiser heating control system, wet Under Floor Heating, extract ventilation and heat recovery systems and air conditioning in every room.
