Glenilla Road, Belsize Park
A rare opportunity arose to excavate a basement under two semi-detached properties simultaneously in Belsize Park, North London.
Planning applications was prepared and submitted to Camden Council Planning Department for the proposed basements and were granted at the first attempt. As soon as planning approval was consented, construction work commenced.
The basement at one of the properties provided a study, gym, family/media room, guest bedroom with an ensuite, a WC and a utility room. The basement in the other property provided an art studio, family/media room, 2nos. guest bedroom with a Jack and Jill bathroom, WC, and a utility room.
Large ligthwells were constructed at the front and at the rear of the property with metal lightwell grilles and walk-on glass floor plates.
