Gazey Architects were commissioned to convert the loft space of this three-storey Victorian terraced property in North London.
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 three conservation rooflights to the property's street-aspect roofscape and introduce a full width dormer to the rear to provide natural daylight interesting views.
The rear-aspect dormer is clad in a sensitively-considered pre-weathered zinc to limit any visual impact to the appearance of the surrounding area. The loft has a large bi-fold door opening to provide both natural light and a view of the adjacent church.
