Oldfield Road Loft
N16 – Stoke Newington, Hackney
A loft conversion was the perfect way to create more room for the owners of this property and their growing family in Hackney, North London. Bradley Van Der Straeten architects designed an extra level to the terraced house that accommodates a double bedroom, nursery and shower room.
The new wing of the property has a more modern feel and is made distinctive by the natural plywood staircase. The stair pulls away from the main wall and allows the new bespoke double-height window to flood the conversion with natural light. The master bedroom hosts floor to ceiling French doors which open onto a balcony hidden behind the existing parapet which further creates the illusion of space and light.
The key success of the project is that it takes the typical loft extension layout and transforms it with a few unique modifications.
