Split Level Flat Conversion
London Borough of Haringey, N15
Haines Phillips Architects were appointed to prepare feasibility and detailed designs to maximize the development potential of an existing first floor flat with a substantial loft space by converting it in to two self-contained one bed flats.
The existing building was a typical 1930s two storey terraced house that had been subdivided in the 1980s in to 4 self-contained flats.
Our design carefully split the first floor flat and second floor loft space in to two separate units, each with separate entrances from the common parts.
The internal layout of the first floor flat was subtly altered to create a new entrance hall and a new mezzanine study space was created over the kitchen and living areas by incorporating part of the loft space over. By adding a rooflight in the rear roof slope over the mezzanine area, the double height living space is flooded with natural light and gives a contemporary feel within the period property.
The detailed design included careful consideration of the construction process in order to carry out the works whilst the lower level flats remained in occupation and to provide the necessary fire and acoustic separation. The flat created in the second floor loft space is described in a separate project page here.
Our work included feasibility studies, planning applications, detailed design and specification of the conversion works.
Planning consent was obtained in April 2017 and the project was completed in January 2019.
