Modern Elegance Meets Timeless Charm: Elsie Road Loft Conversion
A Hip to Gable Transformation Synthesising Light, Space, and Functionality with Luxurious Details
Hip-to Gable Loft
/ Project Overview.
Situated at Elsie Road SE22, this project entailed a carefully orchestrated two-bedroom Hip to Gable loft conversion, embodying natural light and space optimisation. This comprehensive endeavour included permitted development, bespoke glazing, recessed lighting around skylights and large windows, high-end fixtures and fittings, and a seamless integration of new, modern staircase with the existing one.
/ Clients Requirements and Goals.
The client sought to cultivate a radiant living space abundant in natural light. They expressed a preference for recessed lighting around large windows and roof lights. High-end fixtures were preferred to add an elegant touch to the loft’s overall aesthetic. They also requested a unique layout, facilitating access to the loft bathroom from both bedrooms, alongside a full re-roof.
/ Challenges and Solutions.
While the eleven weeks consisted of fulfilling the client's requirements, we adeptly navigated some challenges along the way:
Staircase Integration: We harmonised the modern stairs and loft hallway with the traditional staircase seamlessly, utilising an innovative layout.
Lighting: With clever design, we achieved a balance between the natural light pouring through large windows and soothing ambience of the recessed lighting.
Spatial Configuration: Clever space management helped us carve out a spacious bathroom that could be accessed from both bedrooms.
Joinery within Tight Spaces: Meticulous craftsmanship enabled us to fit eaves joinery in constricted spaces effectively.
Our loft conversion project at Elsie Road boasted large, modern glazing and high-end fixtures that spoke of uncompromised standards. Creative placement of recessed lighting set the stage for a captivating play between light and shadow within the space.
/ Optimisation for Functionality and Usability.
We transformed underutilised eaves areas into practical storage spaces, maximising functionality. By establishing accessible routes to the loft bathroom from both bedrooms, we ensured usability alongside adhering to the aesthetics.
/ Project Completion: Unveiling Results & Client Experience.
The Elsie Road loft conversion was a journey of conquering design challenges and transmuting a vision into a tangible experience. Over the course of 11 weeks, we innovatively utilised the space, optimised it for usability, and created a soulful, modern yet practical loft that aligned perfectly with our client's high standards and design aspirations.
Here's what our client had to say:
"We're incredibly satisfied with Tom and his Benchmark loft team's work. From their understanding of our initial requirements, additional guidance on some of the more tailored options, quality of finish and professionality throughout. Plus the work finished slightly ahead of schedule!"
With each step of the journey, we believe in setting the benchmark higher, and the Elsie Road project serves as a testament to this mission. We are inspired by our clients' satisfaction and driven by the commitment to uphold our core values - quality, design intricacy, and uncompromised standards.
