Too often basements are dark, low, plain boxes. We came up with a unique concept for this Chelsea property, and developer Colour Space London Ltd had the confidence in them to go along with their vision. The result was a spatially interesting basement with architectural value. The basement was conceptualised as a space reminiscent more of an art gallery than a living room, with directional lighting and cool colours creating a good backdrop for paintings. The double height joinery, designed in-house, also provides space for sculpture, whilst integrating a bar and staircase.
