Residential Loft Conversion Commission: North Oxford, Oxford, Oxfordshire 3.
Client: Private Client.
Type: Loft Conversion.
Brief: This project, now complete, was the conversion of the loft space of a mid terraced property in North Oxford, Oxford.
The property, dating from the 1890's, is now set over 4 floors. The converted loft provides an additional bedroom with en-suite facilities. To maximise storage within the loft, the eaves spaces are carefully designed to serve as half height wardrobes with Velux's provided to both the front and rear to maximise headroom above these areas.
As the property sits within a conservation area, a small, lead clad, inset dormer is provided to the rear. A large box dormer was not permitted by the conservation team.
In addition to the loft conversion works, a number of other refurbishment works were also carried out.
Build Cost: Estimated at £70k.
Status: Completed August 2012.
