Gazey Architects were commissioned to convert the loft space of this two-storey Victorian terraced property in Radlett, Hertfordshire.
The brief was to utilise the property’s roof space to provide a 40sqm self-contained en-suite bedroom while maintaining a low key presence to the street elevation and exploiting the rear elevation.
The idea was to install two conservation rooflights to the property’s street-aspect roofscape and introduce a large dormer to the rear to provide natural daylight interesting views.
As the property is located in a Conservation Area, the rear-aspect dormer is clad in a sensitively-considered natural slate finish to limit any visual impact to the appearance of the surrounding area. The dormer extension has an extremely large picture framed glazed opening to provide both natural light and a view of the adjacent greenery. Internally, this feature forms a large integrated seat.
