The first commission for the owners of this tiny but absolutely delightful 100-year-old house involved the construction of a new modern Kitchen and removal of some internal walls to create an open-plan Kitchen/Living area.
The second commission involved the removal of the 'outside loo and Laundry' and the construction of a glass-roofed seating area. The existing Bathroom was completely refurbished to incorporate modern/efficient fittings and accessories (whilst still maintaining the character of the rest of the house) and a toilet and concealed Laundry.
The roof conversion shown in the attached drawings and photographs has provided a new main Bedroom (with 3 dormer windows), a 'walk-in' Robe, an En-suite with dormer and storage areas accessible from the Bedroom via concealed doors.
By careful design, the new access stair was incorporated into the Corridor area outside the downstairs Bathroom so that no habitable Ground Floor space was lost.
Over the years, this office has completed a number of similar roof conversions and, when meeting a new client to discuss the possibility of attic conversions, the clients always assume that it will be necessary to lose an entire Ground Floor room. We are usually able to provide a design solution that avoids this loss of valuable floor space whilst still providing an efficient and pleasant stair.
The owners of this dwelling are delighted with the house, and we look forward to commission No 4!
