How amusing would it be to get lost in the labyrinth of your own personal space? Cellar extension- a massive phenomenon that has created a niche for itself in the UK. Walking past a street in London is just the tip of the iceberg for the passer-by. The multicultural, vibrant, monarchical, architectural masterpieces have undoubtedly raised the pricing of the real-estate sector in London.
Invention originates from need. When the owners of a particular property in a “Piccadilly Circus” area wanted some extra space, buying another property might cost them an arm and leg. Building a living space that reflects the size of a tennis court might turn out to be a minimum 2-year long process and you will have to shell out millions of pounds from your pocket.
Cellar Conversions and its role in the Community
With a higher percentage of people opting for basement conversions projects, it is looked upon as a modest consumable for a buyer (since he can save millions of pounds for an accommodation in the UK). However, the alteration in the overall character of the building may also have some conniving effects on the area of the community. Although, the demands by the residents, has made the London property development authorities to allow at least 10 or less housing mix projects to be undertaken in a particular area (without much undesirable loss to roads or other aspects of the community infrastructure).
While creating a spatial design plan for a basement conversion in London, adequate measures and studies must be conducted to understand the geological mapping of the area and its environment effect, if any (due to the construction activity). It has to be noted that the cellar conversions are not done only by digging up to a few meters beneath the height of the actual building, but many a times the basement length covers the front (as well as rear) end of the garden. This activity can cost a few trees and affect the geographical alignment (which must be reduced to a large extent while planning the entire course of action).
Architects and contractors must also study the impact of the industrial sites (if any excavation project is being undertaken in such areas) to the environment (now or in the future) while charting out a project scheme.
