Basement ConversionStewarton Drive, Glasgow
Fife Architects worked closely with the clients on this basement conversion to realize their aspirations of converting their existing Victorian Villa into a five-bedroom family home by renovating the existing under-used basement.
The original basement, which consisted of one bedroom, a shower room and low height un-inhabitable storage areas, was largely excavated in order to provide adequate head room for the brand new living accommodation. The existing internal basement walls were completely demolished and a new steel arrangement introduced at ceiling level to support the existing upper storeys of the house. The new accommodation includes a new lounge, utility and large store, two bedrooms, office and spa style shower room.
