Wilna Road Loft Conversion, SW18, Wandsworth
We created a kitchen extension for our client on Wilna Road, but he also wanted to add more living space to the house with a large bedroom/bathroom loft conversion.
After discussing his requirements, we recommended a Mansard loft conversion with a rear addition; the main loft area was turned into a new bedroom with Velux windows, while the rear additional formed a new ensuite bathroom. The work took around 7 weeks to complete, as the decoration was managed by the client’s preferred supplier. We liaised with the client and their supplier to ensure that all of the fixtures would work with the new design and to maintain the schedule for completed works.
The mansard faces were clad with man-made slate to match the rest of the house, while a French door was also added to the dormer faces to provide beautiful views and plenty of natural light in the new bedroom. Juliette balconies and French doors are usually not allowed without planning permission, but as this was already required for the Mansard conversion we had more flexibility to add these details.
Adding both a loft conversion and a kitchen extension has significantly increased the available living space at the client’s home, both in communal and private spaces. These improvements have also increased the value of his home, with an excellent ROI.
