Slopes and Basements
Solving the complex.
Designing for and building on sloping blocks (incline, decline or side-angled) requires a mastery that comes with technical understanding and experience. The same applies to underground basement construction, and the outcome of both – or either – can create aesthetic and functional beauty.
In working with a complex site, maximising space to deliver on elements of light, height and aspect will determine the design direction. While basement construction may take a less considered approach to overall design, it requires meticulous planning and care in the physical digging and building due to underground services.
There are many considerations that need to be accounted for when it comes to complex sites and constructions – from angles to drainage and the nuances between. However successful design and build can conquer all, and we know both all too well.
