Loft Conversion
loftwindow In the spacious loft of this end terrace victorian  house, this conversion to a room created a versatile home office and spare bedroom.  Using the end gable for fenestration allows a more conventional feel to the room than would be the case with either roof lights or dormers.
loftbricks The party wall against the neighbours, featuring two chimney columns, was simply cleaned up and repointed with lime mortar. The rich red colour of the bricks gives the room a warmth which could not be done with other decorative techniques.  Victorian matchboarding from the original stairwell has been re-used here for cupboard doors, awaiting stripping.
