Home > Portfolio > PROJECT: Attic Conversion to Inner City Terrace

Project Description

Location: Sydney Inner West

Many of Sydney's inner city terrace houses provide excellent opportunities to add additional living and storage space within the existing building structure eliminating the need to build outward into valuable courtyard areas. Here, this attic space was brought to life to the full extent. Often times new skyline views will accompany an attic conversion. Traditional dormer windows provide aesthetic value while variations of the dormer can offer greater functionality. Another attractive feature of an attic conversion, when done right, are all the finished geometric plaster surfaces.

The Challenges

SCOPE of WORKS: structural upgrade of timber framing to cater for new floor loads as well as existing ceiling loads; all-but demolish roof and re-build to suit minimum floor space/head height ratio and structural requirements, new colorbond roof and replace roofing on whole of dwelling, new dormer window to front with storage either side, large custom dormer window to rear, new timber stair case, new full size window to balcony below, structural upgrade of timber framing to existing garage, new full height custom wardrobe to master bedroom.
