Our client lived in a part of London where a typical dormer conversions are not allowed as part of the local authority planning departments. Instead the client went for a mansard loft conversion.
As always when you love where you live why move when you can improve your home and stay where you are?
Even though most mansard loft conversions are built costing of slate tiles, the client opted to go with a zinc finish giving the conversion a very modern look.
The client also wanted two rooms that would be able to become one, so to have this option we installed double pocket doors. These doors sink into the wall when they’re closed. Giving you more space and an impression you’re in one room when they’re open.
Stairwells can be very dark without any windows. Here it wasn’t possible to have a window so we opted for a skylight above the oak staircase
The front of the house was re-tied using Spanish late to keep in with the period setting of the road.
