The Brighton Loft Company team undertook an investment project in Brighton recently, where we worked alongside the owner to transform an extremely run-down property into a fully furnished, practical and stylish Airbnb.
The transformed loft conversion project is now complete with:
- A twin bedroom, for flexible sleeping arrangements.
- Elegant and spacious double bedroom
- Modern and stylish bathroom
- Contemporary living and dining area
- Fully integrated and sleek kitchen
The design of this project followed a modern and vibrant approach, ensuring that all rooms combined style with practicality. First and foremost this was an investment for our client and we’ve been able to help her create a space which is ideal for a staycation in Brighton. She reports that the apartment has been full booked since completion.
We’re very proud of the excellent effort from the team, and the quality of work is superb as usual!

In a recent project we carried out in Seven Dials, our team completely refurbished this split level first floor flat. Installing twin Velux Cabrio balcony windows in the loft space, where the beautiful, blushed-pink walls are perfectly complemented by the bottle green bathroom interior.
On the lower level, we turned a ratty flat roof which had been accessed by crawling through a window into a stunning roof terrace, complete with a walk on glass roof light and now accessed by timber french doors set in a lead cheeked dormer. This is now perfect place to relax with a glass of something bubbly and admire the impressive Brighton cityscape.
We set out to really maximize space in this project, and by installing elements such as parquet floor, William Morris designed wallpaper and bespoke timber doors we feel that this property has certainly been restored to its former glory.
Genevieve and Tim wanted a space which could act as a communal space for the whole family to socialise in, and as an area which would become a hangout for their kids as they grew into teenagers!
The large open space we created currently acts as a playroom come office, but with the free standing bath located at one end of the space it has the potential to become a rather luxurious master bedroom.
As their garden climbs up the slope to the rear of the house, they would almost be on eye level with the loft conversions dormer. So, it was important that it wasn’t too imposing. By breaking up the design in to three separate dormers located in line with existing windows and sourcing reclaimed tiles we minimised impact it creates on the house.
Farhana lives in the top floor flat of a converted Victorian terrace house. Due to the nature of the property permitted development rules don’t apply, and so when seeking to undertake a dormer loft conversion you would need to apply for planning permission. In this instance she wasn’t successful in getting permission for Dormer.
As she was still desperately in need of gaining some extra space (and value!) we designed this beautiful light and airy Velux conversion.
Paul and Liz live in a beautiful bungalow with their twins, who are growing older and need their own rooms. They also waned to create more light in their main living space.
Since this is a bungalow, we had to be inventive with the design. We worked with Paul and Liz to design a large, bright space complete with lots of storage. The gallery speaks for itself – the conversion opened up so many opportunities for storage and part of the conversion was installing gigantic roof lanterns in the rear flat roof for all day lighting.
While we were at it we also replaced the very tired tiled roof with smart new grey tiles, and replaced the old leaking felt flat roof with a Matrix GRP fibre glass roof (a product guaranteed for 20 years!). We even built a new front porch and installed all new anthracite PVC windows to tie in with the new roof colour. All in all, it makes it the smartest property on the street.
