A loft conversion is a very popular design solution for those who are lucky enough to have a large un-utilized space within the roof. In the majority of situations a loft conversion will fall under permitted development criteria meaning it will not require planning permission – however it is always recommended a Lawful Development Certificate is sought to avoid any potential of enforcement at a later date. Davies Architectural Services have a vast amount of experience with loft conversions where we cover all types of applications and designs. We are the chosen architectural service for multiple loft conversion specialist builders who trust us to provide a first class service for what is a complicated project type. A typical application route for this type of project is shown to the right of this page.
A loft conversion has many benefits for the occupiers of a dwelling. The usual brief for this type of project includes a modern ‘quirky’ master-bedroom with luxurious en-suite with minimal impact to the first floor. Due to Davies Architectural experience with this type of project we are well placed to provide you with a design that satisfies your brief which has a minimal negative impact to the existing dwelling. The key to a successful loft conversion is the positioning of the staircase to ensure all space around the dwelling it optimised. Of course any development is not restricted to these principles and we are always happy to discuss your individual requirements with you.
A loft conversion is sure to add real value to your home if properly designed. Benefits include an additional master bedroom for a growing family, en-suite, modern construction techniques and functional living space. Popular design features of a loft conversion include dormer windows, velux sky-lights, large master bedrooms and luxurious en-suits.
