Piggy Back Loft Extension
Our clients had an unused loft space and wanted to make an extra room or two. But the height of the loft was too low for a normal loft conversion. To solve this we came up with a design to raise the height of the roof, over the back part of the house. We call this a piggy back loft extension.
We got planning for the new roof height approved by Kingston Upon Thames first go. The result is a loft conversion with great space and light, and an amazing view from the main new loft room!
Kingston Loft Conversion
A good loft conversion can add a lot of value to a house. In a part of London like Kingston Upon Thames the added value per m² is far more than the build cost, so our clients were very happy to get planning for the work.
3 New Loft Rooms
As well as a large new loft room at the back of the house, our design adds a big loft bathroom and a small room for the family’s au pair at the front of the house. The three new loft rooms are connected by a bright landing space, with an oak stair and a glass balustrade.
Loft Conversion Wow Factor
The loft room has a real wow factor because of the full height glass wall to the rear. This gives a stunning view over the park at the rear of the house. The glass slides opens so that in the summer the room is full of fresh air. The loft room is a bright space with lots of natural day light. Three large electric roof lights with blinds on the south roof pitch give even more control over the light in the space. At night high spec LED lights can be dimmed and set up to give mood lighting.
Glass, Roof Lights and Joinery
The same high spec roof lights and LED lights have been used in the design of the landing and front loft room. The space is well planned, and great design details complete the loft conversion. These include frame less doors with flush hinges, oak handrails to the stairs, and bespoke joinery in a ply wood finish.
