"Our client was looking to undergo a loft conversion, through an L-shaped dormer extension. This needed to hold two bedrooms with one shower room, and all was to be carried out in accordance with a modern style. Some internal alterations were required for the first floor, in order to accommodate a new loft staircase. "

Project details

This project was a perfect example of how a well designed loft conversion can add useful space and value to your home. This property finished with a modern and spacious top floor, with plenty of natural light. This project was carried out under a Lawful Development Certificate (meaning the homeowner was operating under their permitted development rights), which was granted on 12th June 2018.

Solution

I divided the loft space into two bedrooms, one with an ensuite. This master bedroom had a walk-in wardrobe, floor to ceiling glass window, and was fitted with two skylights and a skylight for the ensuite. I removed the skylight above the first floor stairs, and placed the loft staircase adjacent to this.
