At Architects Atelier, we help turn your home into a bespoke residential space – one that meets your own individual needs. We all live somewhere and spend a massive amount of our leisure time at home, so it’s important that it is functional but also a nice environment to be in.
The balance between function and aesthetics is something that we seriously consider when creating designs; we really get to know our clients and their needs. We have a vast knowledge of London and the South East and, as the building process can be complex, we use all this combined knowledge to apply an integrated approach to design.
There are many things to consider, no matter what the size of the project you are looking to take on. These considerations will include your needs, in terms of the amount of space you want, and the use of this space, costs involved and any statutory compliance, e.g. planning permission. We can help you with this decision-making process so that you get the end result that you desire.
We are fairly well-known residential architect specialists in and around the London and South East area, and one of the reasons our reputation is so good is that we treat each project with equal importance.
If you love the area you live in but need another bedroom, extending your loft is a great way to add one to your home without the fuss and expense of moving to a bigger house.
At Architects Atelier, we have over four years’ experience designing, extending and
Converting a loft space is a specialist type of development. In order to convert a space successfully, we use our integrated approach to address the architectural, interior and structural design at the same time as maximising your planning potential, along with satisfying all legal obligations and delivering to your budget every time. This is why so many of leading loft conversion companies in London and the South East trust us to prepare plans and full construction packages for their clients.
We also have experience of working in small lofts that have been rejected by builders as ‘unbuildable’ due to limited space (head height). In many cases, we have created loft conversions using an alternative/engineered solution to build.
Our first step to converting your loft will begin with identifying your planning route. The type of loft conversion your property can achieve will very much vary, depending on its planning status. We need to establish whether your property can be extended through ‘permitted development’ or whether it will require full planning permission. View our planning pages for more information on the planning process and how we can generate a planning strategy to maximise the development potential of your home.
Other than obtaining planning permission, we also provide full working drawings to issue to builders to build. These comprise of construction detailing, building specifications, structural designs and structural calculations. Many of our clients prefer this route as it enables them to approach builders directly to gain a more accurate quote to build the loft conversion that they want, leaving nothing to chance.
