A lower ground floor can be excavated
under an existing property to provide additional accommodation.
The property may have an original coal cellar or none. Working with
a structural engineer, Leonard Design will design the space to maximum
advantage. Light and ventilation is provided by lightwells to the
front and rear of the property. A generous ceiling height also adds
to the quality of the space together with good lighting. Clients
have used this accommodation for a variety of purposes: family rooms,
bedrooms, bathrooms, utility rooms, storage and home cinemas.
