Project Gallery: Subterranean Sizzle
Media rooms, wet bars, personal gyms, saunas, and bathrooms work well below ground level.
We all know that finishing a basement is a great way to add space to a home without an addition, but this project proves just how true that is. This incredible lower-level entertainment and exercise complex was designed for a busy professional couple. The well-appointed space has everything one might want for restorative activities, entertaining friends, or just some downtime. There’s no need to get in the car to drive to the gym, a movie theater, or even a restaurant—all that’s required is a quick trip down a flight of stairs. In the state-of-the-art kitchen, family and friends can join the homeowners as they test new foods and different ways to prepare them. A fully furnished bar with wine room and beer tap adds to the social aspect of the kitchen. After enjoying dinner and drinks, there’s no need to call it a night. Just a few steps from the bar is a home theater, perfect for taking in a sporting event or movie. To make sure that living it up on the lower level doesn’t weigh down the homeowners, the 1,875 sq. ft. of finished basement space also includes a well-appointed workout room and spa bath complete with sauna.
