June 4, 2020
London Building Control are pleased to have provided Building Control advice to The Magnificent Basement Co Ltd on this award winning project including the construction of a new mixed use 3 storey building adjacent to the Sekforde Inn, and a glazed link forming a clear divide between the old and new.
The new building adjacent to the historic pub features a dramatic brick point. Contained within this is a two-bed short stay maisonette flat at 1st and 2nd floor, and an office at ground floor level. This new build uses traditional decorative brick features such as tuck-pointed gauged brick arches and recesses, along with a contemporary interpretation of Georgian proportions.
The Magnificent Basement Co Ltd is involved in construction and
engineering. It is a multi-disciplinary company consisting of structural engineers, architects, and lawyers. The company has won the 2018 RIBA Sustainability Award and 2019 Camden & Islington Sustainability Award. Services include sustainable design of residential and commercial buildings to the highest standards such as Passive House standard; architectural and structural design of any building; engineering and construction of new-builts, extensions, basements, renovations, and conversions and property investment consultancy.
The development is an example of successful collaboration across many disciplines.
