Refurbishment of a property
ClientThe Bishops Avenue #1
We undertook an ambitious project involving the extension and comprehensive renovation of a prestigious Mansion located on one of Hampstead’s most distinguished roads. The endeavor encompassed the construction of an expansive 10,000 sq. ft. basement beneath the rear garden, extending beneath the existing house and effectively doubling the property’s size.
Overview & Challenge
• VS Construction Services devised a plan involving the wholesale demolition of one wing of the property, which facilitated faster and improved access to the rear. This allowed for efficient removal of excavated earth during the ground works stage and seamless importation of materials for the basement construction and garden reinstatement.
• Collaborating with the architect, VS Construction Services conducted feasibility studies to explore various development options.
• The decision was made to comprehensively refurbish and extend the main house, in addition to creating a substantial underground leisure complex with a swimming pool beneath the garden. This complex would be connected to the main house through a rear link.
• We skillfully managed the planning process, securing detailed planning permission and Listed Building Consent for the project.
• The interior design brief harmoniously blended modern elements with the heritage of the existing building, creating a contrasting yet cohesive ambiance. The new basement adopted a contemporary style.
• We engaged specialized artisan craftsmen to achieve the exquisite level of finish required. These trusted specialists were seamlessly integrated into the contract by VS Construction Services. Throughout the project, we maintained an open flow of communication with all neighbors, ensuring respect and consideration from all contractors involved.
