Love the area you live in but need another bedroom? Extending your loft is a great way to add an additional bedroom to your home without the fuss and expense of moving to a bigger house.
At MSK Design we have over 10 years’ experience designing, extending and converting homes, comprising of over 250 loft conversions of various types across London.
Converting a loft space is a specialist type of development. In order to convert a space successfully, we use our integrated approach to address the architectural, interior and structural design at the same time as maximising your planning potential, along with satisfying all legal obligations and delivering to your budget every time. This is why so many of London’s leading loft conversion companies trust us to prepare plans and full construction packages for their clients.
We also have experience in working in small lofts that have been rejected by builders as ‘un-buildable’ due to limited space (head height). In many cases we have created loft conversions using an alternative/engineered solution to build.
Our first step to converting your loft will begin with identifying your planning route.The type of loft conversion your property can achieve will very much vary depending on its planning status. We need to establish if your property can be extended through ‘permitted development’, or whether it will require full planning permission. View our planning pages for more information on the planning process and how we can generate a planning strategy to maximise the development potential of your home.
Other than obtaining planning permission, we also provide full working drawings to issue to builders to build. These comprise of construction detailing, building specifications, structural designs and structural calculations. Many of our clients prefer this route as it enables them to approach builders directly to gain a more accurate quote to build the loft conversion that they want – leaving nothing to chance.
Why we recommend using an Architectural Specialist
Many people are still opting for the convenient option of approaching a builder directly to design and build their loft conversion, the risk here is that they may end up overpaying for a substandard design, or actually not meet their full planning potential. At MSK Design, once we have prepared your construction package we can help you source the right quote from the right builder.
With every project, our standard services offers up to 3 designs for internal space layouts for you to consider, this also includes bathroom designs. We will always discuss with you what your spatial requirements are and can work with you in your own home to fine tune any design in CAD. Are you going to keep your bed? – If so we will measure it and place it into your drawings.
Our service also offers all clients a design development meeting either at our office or in your home. This enables all clients to actively work with us, to ensure that your furniture, fixtures and fittings fit in exactly where you want them.
Most of our loft conversion work can be carried out on a fixed fee pending our initial survey. With all planning submissions, we offer one free re-submission where schemes only require minor amendments however, the chances are that you will not need it as our success rate for gaining planning permission for a loft conversion on the first round has been 100% for the past 3 years!
