Islington Basement

New Basement and Extension
Islington, London
Completed 2014

An innovative basement and extension project in the Arlington Square Conservation Area which adds over 45sqm to the area of the house.

Originally approached to convert an existing garage, we developed alternative designs to unlock the potential of the site. The corner plot has been transformed by excavating under the garden and replacing it with a contemporary glass winter garden which links to a double-height guest annexe in place of the existing garage.

The en-suite guest annexe has its own access from the street via a mezzanine gym and striking steel staircase.
