Loft Conversion at Camden

The loft conversion project aimed to create additional living space for a two-storey high dwelling with three bedrooms and a lower ground floor in the St. John's Wood conservation area of the borough of Camden. As a Grade-2 listed property, the project required careful consideration to ensure that the proposed changes were in keeping with the character of the surrounding area and the historic significance of the building.


The design proposal for the loft conversion featured a mansard roof with flat skylights facing the rear garden, which was intended to create additional living space and enhance the natural light in the property. However, the proposal was ultimately rejected by the local authorities due to concerns about the impact on the neighboring listed property.

Despite the rejection of the original design proposal, the project team remained committed to finding a solution that would meet the needs of the client while respecting the historic significance of the building and the surrounding area. The team worked closely with the local authorities and the client to develop a revised design proposal that took into account the concerns raised by the planning officers.

The revised design proposal was carefully crafted to ensure that it was in keeping with the character and historic significance of the building and the surrounding area. The new design featured a more subtle roof extension, which minimized the impact on the neighboring listed property while still creating the desired additional living space and enhancing the natural light in the property.


In the end, the loft conversion project was successfully completed, providing the client with additional living space while respecting the historic significance of the building and the surrounding area. It's an excellent example of how careful planning, attention to detail, and collaboration with local authorities can ensure that even the most challenging projects can be successfully completed while preserving the character and heritage of our built environment.
