"The main requests that the client provided me with was for the creation of a basement complex that had the potential to form a self-contained annex that could be sold on if necessary. This meant that they needed private access to the outside from the basement. They wanted an orangery with a roof lantern and bi-fold doors - split into two, with individual entrance areas."

Project details

Our client came to Resi with the idea of creating a basement complex, with an orangery on the ground floor above. The result was fantastic chill area - a living room with a bar and dining room attached, an en-suite bedroom, and external courtyard. The ground floor orangery was split into two, because... who doesn't need two orangeries?

Solution

I needed to design a floor plan that entirely separated off the basement, which meant the basement stairs arose to the smaller orangery division, which then led outside. For this basement suite, I created a floor plan that was modern and open plan - a living area with an attached bar and dining space, and a master bedroom. Natural light was let in from the courtyard, a feat that is not always an easy task when it comes to basements. The two orangeries each had a roof lantern, and their own entrances.
