Extending into the loft allowed us to create a beautiful attic bedroom
Located in Putney south-west London, this Victorian maisonette was transformed into a beautiful sanctuary, The homeowner wanted her home to reflect her South African roots while offering a welcome retreat from life on the road. The property itself, however was small, tired and forlorn, but there was scope to change the layout and extend upwards.
Purchased in 2010, the home now offers a sitting room, kitchen-diner/study, four bedrooms (one en-suite) and a shower room.
Extending into the loft allowed us to create a beautiful attic bedroom with a pair of skylights framed by tongue and groove clad ceilings over built-in cupboards which double as bedside tables on either side of the bed, built in wardrobes and en-suit bathroom.
In the sitting room our client was keen to achieve a feeling of space, without compromising the other rooms on this floor, Amory Brown the designers came up with a floor plan that effectively doubled the living space by re-configuring the floor to create an open-plan kitchen-diner/sitting room with vaulted ceiling.
Converting the loft area into two bedrooms and an en-suite bathroom was key to the redesign, as was the use of clever storage solutions, such as utilising the area under the banquette seating in the dining area, bookshelves on the landing and built in cupboards in the bedrooms.
