Contemporary Loft Conversion to form new apartment, York

Project overview / Project value:

Stylish loft conversion in York creating contemporary penthouse apartment in upper floors of existing terraced house / £150,000

Services provided / local authority:

Architectural & Interior Design / York City Council

Project brief:

We were appointed to carry out architectural & interior design services to renovate the existing upper floor and convert the loft space of a large victorian terraced house close to York City Centre into a modern and stylish penthouse apartment. A planning application would be required to be submitted to York City Council in order to gain permission to create the additional dwelling. The structural fabric of the building was in great condition which meant that the refurbishment works were largely cosmetic, which in turn allowed the client to spend more of their budget on the designer bathroom and kitchen, as well as other luxuries.

Particular attention to detail was needed in order to minimise sound transmission from the upper floors to the lower two floors of accommodation, which were to be kept as a separate dwelling. The loft space work was carried out as a large open plan living / kitchen area which enjoyed great views over the city of York.
