Modern Basement Apartment

Project Overview

This geometric and contemporary basement construction created a legal and rentable apartment. Its intriguing spatial configuration transforms this ordinary, unfinished basement into a lofty and trendy apartment with high ceilings, a delectable color palate and day-lighting.

This project came to us as a partially finished, contractor walk-off, with a long list of code violations. The nature of the project required creating a legal accessory apartment in a historic district, so the regulatory hurdles were significant. As taxing as typical utility, sound-proofing, fire-rating, and code requirements are, this project was an additional challenge due to much of the work not being completed correctly by the original builder.
