Gemma and Stephens Brighton Town House

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.

Geni and Tim’s triple dormer.

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’s roof-light conversion

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’ double Hip to Gable with roof lanterns and a total roof refurb.

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.


Sarah’s Hip to Gable conversion

Sarah decided that she needed more space for her little boy to grow in to. She also felt that would like a dedicated spare room rather than making use of her husbands office when friends came to stay. We were able to help her out by converting her slated roofed end of terrace hipped roof property in to an expansive Two bedroom, one bathroom Hip to gable. With a stair case designed to tie in beautifully to the original and a bathroom with the 1950’s vibe that she so loves. We even replaced her rather tatty old slate roof with beautiful grey tiles and coated her new PVC windows in anthracite grey to match!
