Contemporary Basement The Crescent, London

The Crescent has been renovated by London-based Oxford and London Building Consultancy, who offer a boutique design and contracting service. The contemporary London property can be found in London, England.

The tiny house originally comprised three floors with two rooms on each floor. An ugly extension tacked on to the back of the mezzanine level which made all the floor levels very strange.  The lower ground floor was a room but it had a very low ceiling height.

The dated extension was replaced with a double height glass design space featuring a cantilevered floor which helped pull in light to both the ground and mezzanine floor. Over all the floor area was tripled.  The top floor that originally consisted of two bedrooms was transfigured into an impressive master suite, the ground floor transfigured into a kitchen-diner and snug and the lower ground floor was given extra ceiling height to become a sitting room, guest room and bathroom.  The area under the front garden was excavated to create another bedroom.

The owners are wine lovers so they decided to install a wine room by The London Wine Rooms part of the OLBC group, it was installed in the downstairs living room. A great feature in house. What do you think to of this contemporary London property?
