Variant Office were asked to convert a loft in Kilburn. The family was keen to extend their modest 1.5 bedroom property into a 3-bed family home. Their instinct was to convert and sub-divide the loft into a series of bedrooms with the living spaces on a reconfigured lower floor. We felt that it would make better sense to use the 4 metre high space at the ridge by flipping the plan and have the living spaces in the converted loft.
As part of the works we refurbished the entire property, upgraded the insulation throughout and installed a mechanical ventilation & heat recovery system to improve the energy efficiency of the house.
A restrained palette of natural materials in oak, birch ply, and blackened steel was used to create a light airy home for the family.
