Loft Conversion – Polruan

Project Brief – Loft Conversion & Remodel | Size – 120m2 (51m2 Loft) | Approximate Cost – £110k (2015) |
Services Provided – Design, Planning, Building Regulations

We were commissioned to create plans to re vitalise this 2 bedroom end of terrace ex council bungalow into a contemporary 4 bedroom luxury holiday cottage which currently boasts one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the south west.

The design brief tasked to us by our client was to ensure the spectacular cornish coastline was captured. Our immediate advice was to create reverse plan living with the gable end wall having as much glass as possible in this exposed location.

Circular and triangular feature windows were incorporated to ensure this was achieved and to offer further character to the property.

To create more living space and allow for 4 double bedrooms with 2 en suites and bathroom the length of the original bungalow was extended by just over 2 metres and full length dormer was added to the rear roof.

This was all finished in Marley Eternit Cedral weatherboarding which is durable and rugged enough for this coastal location and creates a fresh “New England” look.

The whole design, planning consents, building regulations including all engineering, detailed specification for electrical installation and detailed specification for heating was undertaken by A & K Architectural Services who also oversaw the build and assisted with procurement.

We are sure you will agree that this conversion not only offers Cornwall a stunning
holiday let but also gives new lease of life to an ex local authority bungalow.
