OCHBA 2011 - Best Basement Design
Our clients wanted to transform their unfinished basement into a luxurious, entertaining space which was to include a state of the art theatre room complete with large recessed, drop down viewing screen and state of the art A/V equipment, games area, fireplace and bar, wine cellar, full washroom and exercise room.
Our philosophy regarding basement design is to create a space that rivals that of any other living space above grade. Lighting is critical. Incorporating elements such as duct work, teleposts into the design is key.
In order to add height, we re-located duct work in order to allow for lit coves in key areas. Not only do these lit coves add to the illusion of height but they add visual interest and mood/drama.
The incorporation of stone veneer, wood barn doors in rift cut oak, also used in combination with zebrano in all of the millwork design, a soft patterned berber carpet design, lit niches, stair lighting, and luxurious Italian furniture all add to the high level of detail, sophistication and interest.
