Flats, Maisonettes, Conservation Areas

If you live in a conservation area, planing permission will be required Here we would have to to submit drawing for approval so it pays to use a company that knows all the local planning departments and has many years of experience with each council and what their policies are. Because be assured, they are all different. Our architect design team will deal with the drawings and planning application There are seldom many problems when it comes to getting planning permission and keeping within the rules, it will pay to work with a company that knows what it's doing . Planning permission normally takes eight weeks and then we can normally start projects as soon as we have the approval, if customer is ready to get started at this stage

Mansards Conversions

Here we have a mansard conversion. It has one large bedroom, with a shower room. With the mansard we built up the side party walls using London Stock type bricks.

It allows for the full width extension of your home to be utilised and, these bricks match in well with the existing property.

Mansards are accepted by some councils via planning permission and some council don’t won’t, we will let you know what you local council’s planning requirements are. The mansard is an attractive addition to most Edwardian and Victoria houses, as they have a rear 70 degree angle rear slope.

Dormers for conservation areas

Dormers in conservation areas tend to be smaller and not full width or full depth. The examples will show this. Some also are required to be leaded to give an in keeping attractive more traditional finish on the outside.

Although the space is reduced you will find that it is still possible to fit a new double bedroom and shower room into the loft space. Here, with just one dormer, we can fit in a bedroom – or perhaps a bedroom and study as well as a shower room with WC.

An alternative might have been a large bedroom with a luxurious en suite bathroom for the best ever guest accommodation – though you might easily decide to use the room yourself. As always the choice us yours. We will be able to help you decide what is best for you will the help of architect and our knowledge of the area you are in.

Town house - London roof double mansards

This is one of our favourites because what we produce so often exceeds the expectations of our clients and produces virtually a complete new level, the same size as the others, with the potential for two bedrooms and a shower room.

These conversions always require planning permission as the front as well of the rear of the property is changed at the roof level so can be seen from the street at the front, as you can see from the photo and drawings.
You can divide the space up in a few ways – one or two bedrooms shower room etc
