Bird View 3D Section of existing refurbishment of ground floor rear extension and side return in London SW2

Introduction

This project was a part of a comprehensive refurbishment of the third-floor, three-bedroom flat in an old Victorian house situated in South London. It is worth noting that the entire row of Victorian houses in the area has been converted into separate flats. The refurbishment primarily involved internal modifications and the construction of a loft dormer. The addition of this dormer was intended to improve the overall living environment for the occupants by expanding the communal area to create a combined kitchen and living room, affording them the delightful view of the verdant scenery offered by the house's rear garden.

Composition

The initial configuration of the flat featured three bedrooms without a designated living room, and an oddly shaped kitchen accessed from the rear of the staircase. Consequently, one of the larger bedrooms served as the makeshift living room. However, with the revamped layout, significant changes have been made. The staircase has been relocated to the front, while the kitchen has been brought closer to the rear garden. The introduction of a new rear dormer and a spacious window facing the garden has transformed the kitchen area into a combined living room. This newly designed space now offers ample room for a sofa, television, and a dining table. As a result, all three bedrooms are now utilized as originally intended.

Construction Process

Structure

The architectural framework of the dormer was expertly crafted by Magnificent Basement Co Ltd, utilizing robust 6X2 grade C24 timber joists. For the roof of the dormer, a warm roof design was implemented, ensuring optimal insulation by placing it above the joists. To prevent condensation within the roof structure, a vapor barrier was incorporated. The intricate design of the dormer has been meticulously developed to comply with all necessary UK building regulations and adhere to the applicable codes of practice.
