3d Heath Hurst Road, NW3

Loft Conversion, London

For this loft conversion and building refurbishment, the site is located in the Hampstead Conservation Area, between Heath Hurst Road and the London Overground railway line which runs along the rear garden boundary wall. The alteration included a loft conversion into a bedroom, study and utility room. The construction of a new lobby to the ground floor entrance, and a new storage and refuse cupboard to the front garden. At ground floor level, a new glazed sliding door to the rear garden with landscaping including the demolition of an existing obsolete substation enclosure.

The building is a 3 storey terraced house, and is one of the 4 unit housing scheme, built in the mid 80’s. Access to the house is via an entrance to the front where there is a hard standing area for parking a small car.

We opened up the existing ground floor living area with a new steel and glass stair case and full width sliding doors to the rear letting more natural light into the space. A new heating system was installed with under floor heating to the ground floor. We introduced a decked area to the garden allowing a seamless transition between the living space and outside. The kitchen was relocated and a lobby and WC positioned to the front entrance. The new rear mansard and dormer windows were built to the loft space with conservation windows to front elevation. A new utility, guest bedroom and study were located in the loft and separated by full height bi-folding doors allowing the space to be opened up into a single dual aspect living space.
