Urban Basements are Basement experts in Islington, London. We are a specialist Basement company in Islington and the surrounding areas, providing a full service from Basement Design and Planning to Building and Project Management.
Islington, a central and densely populated district in Greater London, is mainly residential, with the bombing of World War Two forcing construction and the rediscovery of the Georgian terraces. Many of the buildings were rehabilitated and made-over, making them fashionable and stylish again.
Key elements of Georgian architecture include basements and cellars, previously used for the storage of coal for heating water and fuelling fires. This makes it fairly simple for conversion, and makes it easier to reuse what can be optimal space for storage, or extending your property without compromising the character or style of the building. Also, as a heavily populated district, extending outwards is usually difficult, so downwards is the way to go, realising the potential from beneath.
