A partial house refurbishment and loft conversion in East Dulwich.
We were appointed by the owners of this lovely terraced house after their first architects failed to deliver the wow factor. The house has a lovely wide footprint but was compromised by the layout at first floor level and the relatively low ridge height in the loft. We re-arranged the plan at first floor level, creating a new family bathroom at the rear and a wonderful double height circulation space with built in study and storage unit.
In the loft we made the most of the width by installing a full width window, helping to offset the feeling of the low head height. The use of traditional steel Crittall windows and their rectangular panes emphasised the width of the room, and gives a wonderful panoramic view of the trees in Camberwell New Cemetery beyond.
Elsewhere in the house we redecorated, stripped & refinished the flooring and knocked through between the living room and dining area. We also redecorated the joinery externally in a charcoal grey, matching in to the new steel windows. The practice designed an array of different fitted furniture pieces to make the most of every nook and cranny of storage left in the house.
