Loft conversion in Cannes, Cornwall

We designed and oversaw the delivery of a loft conversion to this former two bedroom cottage in Cannes, Cornwall into a three double bedroom house by converting the loft and incorporating an existing extension into two extra bedrooms and bathrooms. The conversion added 30% to the floor space of the property.

Two large gables were added at the rear of the house over the existing flat roof extension allowing creation of a new master bedroom with en suite bathroom and an additional four-piece family bathroom. By relocating the stairs from the middle of the lounge to the side of the lounge the room was doubled in size.

Heating was installed through the whole property using heritage radiators and rewiring was undertaken throughout. In addition, a bespoke porch was built from reclaimed timbers, slate and stone.

The planning permission application, building regulations and structural calculations were carried out by A & K Architectural Services. In total this project took 6 months of preparation and then 6 months to build during which the family were resident at all times.
