Charming Rosendale Road Loft Conversion: Tradition, Functionality, and Elegance
An Exquisite Cottage Dormer Conversion Infusing Clever Storage Solutions with Timeless Aesthetic Appeal
Cottage Dormer Loft
/ Project Overview.
Located at Rosendale Road SE21, this 12-week project involved a sophisticated Cottage Dormer loft conversion, adding two bedrooms and one bathroom to the property. Our team expertly navigated local authority planning applications and Dulwich Estate approval, delivering a unique and tailored loft area for our client.
/ Clients Requirements and Goals.
The client sought to maximise functional storage solutions throughout the property while maintaining aesthetic harmony. They expressed a preference for a custom staircase to match the existing one, bespoke joinery, custom lighting, hardwood sash windows, and a full re-roof – while working within the constraints of conservation and Dulwich Estate requirements.
/ Challenges and Solutions.
Our team overcame several challenges during the construction process:
Maximising Space within Roofslope Area: We implemented innovative eaves storage solutions, making the rooms feel spacious, light, and usable, despite the constraints of the loft's roofslope.
Custom Staircase and Joinery: We expertly crafted a bespoke staircase that harmoniously paired with the existing one while creating custom joinery for alcoves and maximising overall space.
Conservation and Dulwich Estate Requirements: We adeptly aligned our design approach within these guidelines, preserving the property's unique charm and historic character.
The Rosendale Road loft conversion showcases a stunning custom staircase, bespoke joinery, hardwood sash windows, and a full re-roof. Clever storage solutions optimise space and enhance the overall aesthetic. The front gable integration provides additional room within the front bedroom, perfect for a desk area.
/ Optimisation for Functionality and Usability.
We meticulously designed and executed the loft conversion, ensuring seamless functionality and usability. Bespoke joinery, eave storage, and alcove utilisation were instrumental in rendering this space functional yet elegant.
/ Project Completion: Unveiling Results & Client Experience.
The Rosendale Road loft conversion stands as a testament to the potential that lies within each property. Through insightful planning and meticulous execution, we transformed an underutilised space into a purposeful, aesthetically pleasing environment that met and exceeded our client's expectations.
Here's what our client had to say:
"We did a lot of work reviewing the various loft companies. We chose Benchmark as I thought Tom seemed genuine and thorough. We were not disappointed. Benchmark is not the biggest company and so it means the team you get are always the best team. The loft team we had were always courteous, punctual and hard working. We are really very happy with the final product both structurally and aesthetically. It was not a straightforward job, we had two good bedrooms and a bathroom out of the space. Good attention to detail, good reproduction of Edwardian detailing, good structural work and internal finishes. The wardrobes and draws were very good too. We were very happy with the final outcome. Benchmark was not the cheapest or the most expensive but I am sure the overall work quality is up with the best. I would highly recommend them."
