Basement Conversion in Reading

Gregory Phillips Architects have worked throughout Reading on many projects including a substantial number of basement excavation and conversion projects.

Established for over 25 years, we provide a unique, considered and professional approach to high quality residential design.

We have produced many award-winning projects for both architecture and interior design; our most recent works include new build contemporary homes, basement excavation, substantial residential extensions, new swimming pools and remodelling projects.

One of our most highly regarded projects in Reading was the design of a contemporary family home in Caversham. The brief was to create a home that was both architecturally exemplary whilst also being highly energy efficient. This robust design solution cleverly responds to both the brief and context, by showcasing a real understanding of traditional and new materials, their relationship to one another, their function, their beauty and how they can be sensitively brought together. The use of brick and timber in a contemporary language, acknowledged and responded to both the neighbouring properties and the surrounding landscape. For example, with the introduction of glazed screens to the ground floor the upper floor appears to float among the surrounding tree canopies.
