What do you do with the underground, windowless space below your house?
Make it an authentic English Pub of course!
Don’t get me wrong, this is not our fathers’ shag carpeted lounge with a Tiki lamp and a beer sign. This basement is a place that if you closed your eyes, walked in, then opened them, you would think you had been transported to a venerable London pub.
Seldom have we been asked to collaborate with a client who has had such a fully realized vision of the final outcome as this basement pub. I believe he could see himself drinking a pint of stout with friends, throwing darts and playing pool in this space before we measured the existing conditions.
We had a great time helping make our client’s vision a reality, working on the details, and throwing in our two cents worth. The contractors, subcontractors, carpenters, craftsman, all joined together in the spirit of good spirits to make this basement a destination.
The authenticity of our client’s vision was revealed on a beautiful summer night when we all headed toward the basement for a pint, good company, and a perfect celebration of work well done.
