Kingston Loft

This is the story of a loft conversion in Kingston. The homeowners wanted to add extra rooms with a great view of their garden but the existing loft space was too low for a normal conversion. To solve this issue, an architectural design was created to raise the roof height over the back part of the house, known as a ‘piggy back’ conversion. Obtaining planning permission to raise the roof height proved difficult, but the design retained the original roof height at the front and raised it over the back of the house, meeting planning policy. The new loft conversion resulted in a spacious and bright room with a stunning view.

A good loft conversion design can add a lot of value to a house, and this was the case for the Kingston conversion and roof extension. The added value per square meter in this part of London outweighs the build cost. The loft conversion was carefully planned and designed, with detailed architectural drawings and a focus on interior design. The three new loft rooms are connected by a bright landing space, with bespoke designed plywood joinery under the eaves providing extra storage.
The loft room has a wow factor due to the full height glass wall at the rear, providing a stunning view over the park. The glass slides open to allow fresh air to enter during the summer. The space is well lit, with three large electric roof lights and high spec LED lights that can be dimmed to set the mood. The same high spec roof lights and LED lights have been used in the landing and front loft room. The design includes frameless doors with flush hinges, oak handrails to the stairs, and bespoke joinery in a plywood finish. A loft conversion can add value and space to your home, and with careful planning and design, it can become a beautiful and functional addition to your living space.
