Dormer loft conversion with internal and external alterations
Dormer Loft Conversion
Dormer loft conversions are a sensible, straightforward and often inexpensive way to add extra space and increase your property value. With successful layout arrangement and beautiful design, your loft could be transformed into a comfortable living space to capture space and light!
Our clients had a clear vision of how intelligent layout arrangement and beautiful design could transform into a spacious, light filled sanctuary. They were keen to create a stylish dormer loft conversion as a private sanctuary from family life with a master bedroom and bathroom – a space to escape from the world – a place for respite and rest. In addition, our clients were clear that they wanted to change the original master bedroom on the first floor into a playroom for the kids.
The first-floor rear extension and L-shaped dormer loft conversion made room for an extra bedroom and study and greater flow of light and ground floor space. To increase our chances of obtaining planning permission for rear extension and loft conversion, we submitted two separate applications: one full planning application for the first floor rear extension and one lawful development certificate application for the L-shaped dormer loft conversion.
We explained to the officers with a wide range of illustrations that neighbouring outlooks and streetscapes would not be affected by the rear extension and successfully obtained planning consent. We then applied for permitted development for the L-shaped dormer loft conversion, ensured we used sympathetic roof typology, and easily obtained the lawful development certificate. Our dual, two staged, planning strategy coupled with creative design solutions for extension and loft conversion enabled us to create and maximise the best use of space, and elevate our clients’ lifestyle and investment.
