South London Loft conversions

In our series looking back at the best of our projects, we’ve picked the best and most interesting loft conversions we have worked on to help bring you some inspiration for your own London Loft conversion.

This time we head south of the River and discover a secret alcove, an open plan bathroom and a room with a view in Brixton.

Gypsy Road, Streatham

Located in the popular neighbourhood of Streatham, this project featured the creation of an L-section rear dormer that included a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a guest bedroom/study.

The brief from the client asked for the double bedroom to feel “den like”. To achieve this, we worked with the features of the house (i.e. chimney breast and eaves) to create a small hidden alcove, with a window that could be used as a reading nook; or, you can just sit and watch the world go by from the comfort of your bedroom. To bring plenty of natural light into the room, two skylights were fitted together with a Juliet balcony. When we designed this room we added a cupboard on each side of the alcove to provide plenty of storage space for the occupiers.

The en-suite bathroom features a shower, sink and toilet, which is flooded with light by the skylight. The guest room/study features storage under the eaves, as well as room for a desk and sofa bed.

Wyndcliff Road, Greenwich

Greenwich Loft Conversion

This build, located in Charlton in Greenwich, saw the creation of a large and spacious bedroom with an open plan bathroom.

To achieve the brief, we built an L-section dormer; and to ensure the conversion blended into its surroundings, as Wyndcliff Road is in a conservation area, we cladded the exterior in imitation slate tiles.

The room we created has a light and airy feel, which is helped by the two skylights and Juliet balcony. The open plan bathroom features a luxurious free standing bath, with a vintage style sink and vanity unit.

Probert Road, Brixton

Bold and dramatic, this rear dormer loft conversion features a double bedroom, bathroom and floor to ceiling windows with a Juliet balcony, overlooking the trendy neighbourhood of Brixton.

The owners of this property have chosen dark, dramatic monochrome colours that highlight the black framed Juliet balcony, which floods the room with light, as well as giving a stunning view; a treat to wake up to. Architectural features and lines, such as the chimney breast, add to the drama, giving the room a unique shape.

The monochrome look carries on in the bathroom with white units contrasting against the large soft grey tiles. The plain walk-in shower adds to the minimalist look.

Kirkdale, Forest Hill

This large dormer on a suburban home in Forest Hill has given the owners a large spacious bedroom and en-suite bathroom.

What was once a dark and unused loft has now been transformed into a huge luxurious bedroom that features floor to ceiling windows, lets in plenty of light and still has ample storage space. The bedroom reaches from the front to the back of the house and has two skylights above the bed for more natural light and privacy. The picture window looks over the back of the property, giving a panoramic view of the side of South East London.

Storage was an important aspect of this build. Shelves have been built next to the chimney breast as well as cupboards being installed under the eaves. Across from the bed is a built-in bespoke wardrobe, which leaves wall and floor space free giving the room an airy uncluttered feel. 

The en-suite bathroom boasts of a walk in showers with recesses built into the wall to hold toiletries, the soft grey titling gives the bathroom a minimalist feel.
