Contemporary Loft Conversion at Surrey Road SE15: Unique Materials, Sleek Design & Bespoke Craftsmanship
A Full-Width Box Dormer Conversion Merging Modernity and Functional Living Spaces.
Full Width Box Dormer Loft
/ Project Overview.
The Surrey Road SE15 project entailed a full-width box dormer conversion featuring one bedroom, a walk-in wardrobe, and an en-suite. Spanning over 12 weeks, this loft conversion demanded a planning application and focused on a modern design using unique materials and bespoke elements.
/ Clients Requirements and Goals.
The client aimed for a modern, innovative aesthetic, requesting alternative cladding such as zinc and diamond slates. Additional features included an internal balustrade recessed into the wooden floor, bespoke glazing, a bespoke metal staircase, natural light with large glazing and electric roof lights, a wet room shower, air conditioning, trimless pocket doors, hardwood parquet flooring, and bespoke birch ply joinery.
/ Challenges and Solutions.
A direct approach combined with expertise and dedication allowed our team to transform each challenge into an opportunity:
Metal Staircase: The bespoke metal staircase required intricate craftsmanship. Our skilled professionals demonstrated this through precision and focus.
Large Windows with Crane Lift and Additional Scaffolding: To install the substantial windows, our team arranged for cranes and added scaffolding, ensuring a seamless process.
Steel Framework: The team successfully tackled the complex steel framework necessary for the structure, demonstrating their adaptability and problem-solving capabilities.
Diamond Slates: The unique diamond slate cladding was professionally installed to the rear and side of the dormer by our experts, illustrating our skill in working with diverse and unique materials.
Anthracite Zinc Cladding: We meticulously installed the anthracite zinc cladding on the rear dormer face to enhance the modern aesthetic.
Recessed Glass Balustrade: The team intricately executed the recessed glass balustrade feature within the wooden floor, contributing to the loft's overall sleek appeal.
Concealed Air Conditioning System: Our solution for the air conditioning system involved integrating it within the loft’s ceiling structure, ensuring it remained concealed for a flawless appearance.
This project is defined by its unique cladding, bespoke metal staircase, large glazing, electric roof lights, recessed glass balustrade, wet room shower, air conditioning, and trimless pocket doors. The hardwood parquet flooring and bespoke birch ply joinery added to the loft's luxurious and modern ambiance.
