Residential Loft Conversion Commission: North Oxford, Oxford, Oxfordshire 6.
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 semi detached property in North Oxford. The property is victorian in era and was set over 2 floors with a modest rear garden. At ground floor, our client wanted to make significant alterations to the rear of the property to create an open plan kitchen / dining / living area. This space, while being modern in finish and feel, was to complement the existing property, providing a light and airy room with views and access to the garden. Large patio doors open from this space onto a raised terrace with glass guarding offering uninterrupted views of the canal beyond. In addition to these works, a substantial loft conversion was also carried out. This conversion provided 2 additional bedrooms, one serving as a master with en-suite and dressing room facilities. The new dormer was clad entirely in lead for the best aesthetic.
Build Cost: Estimated at £200k.
Status: Completed October 2015
