The unused large loft on top of Fegiro and Naomi Bateren’s flat seemed to have a potential for conversion but they didn’t know how to approach this topic. They invited me (Magda) to consult on that matter. I gave them advice on the broad overview, and showed them necessary steps. The outcome was a half day workshop where during our 3.5 hour meeting we explored and drew various options.
After I had measured and drew the loft it appeared that we are dealing with additional 50sqm of space. Not only we managed to explore the option of two additional rooms but also we could accommodate there a bathroom and a storage space. The last option that we explored was a possible conversion of the loft into a separate 1 bedroom flat.
Fegiro and Naomi took my drawings to a builder and showed him the options. Now having a ballpark price they can decide how far they want to go with their loft conversion.
Magda from Pride Road gave us an idea what we can build at our attic space. We literally knew nothing and Magda came around and measured everything up and talked us through the options we have. She gave us three really different ways of looking at the space we had never ever thought before. Now we have an idea on how it could look like, we can visualize it and we can work out how big its gonna be. We have a lot to think about moving forward.

We managed to create two large bedrooms and even fit a bathroom and a large storage. I prepared various scenarios including scaling down the project to keep it within the £30,000 budget.
The client wanted to have two additional bedrooms upstairs. We managed to create two large bedrooms and even fit a bathroom and a large storage in our loft conversion design. When we had the first plan ready we could touch the issues of the budget. I prepared various scenarios scaling down the project to keep it within the budget. As the attic was very large we even had one option that showed how you can create a separate dwelling, treat it as an investment, and get a 3rd flat. At this stage client with 3 options in hand was ready to go and get a general cost plan from a QS or a builder and start planing the budget according to picked option. (Magda)
