Residential Loft Conversion Commission: East Oxford, Oxford, Oxfordshire 14.
Client: Private Client.
Type: Rear Extension and Loft Conversion.
Brief: This project, now complete, was a single storey rear extension and loft conversion to a terraced property in East Oxford. The property is victorian in era and was set over 2 floors with a modest rear garden. At ground floor, our clients wanted to make significant alterations to the rear of the property to create an open plan kitchen / dining area. This space, while being modern in finish and feel, is to complement the existing property, providing a light and aery room with views and access to the garden. Timber bi-fold doors open from this space onto a new patio area. In addition to these works, a full loft conversion was also carried out in order to create an additional bedroom. The new dormer was to appear a stark contrast to your average box dormer and as such lead cladding was specified around carefully proportioned window and door openings.
Build Cost: Estimated at £130k.
Status: Completed June 2014.
