Planning permission has been obtained in Stone Street to a two-storey mid-terrace Victorian property within Cambridge’s Central Conservation Area. The plan creates a ground floor rear open plan kitchen extension with green roof and a loft conversion including rear cedar clad box dormer.
The property is typical of the brick with a slate roof artisan of Victorian terraces in this area. The property is very narrow and head height within the loft space was on the limit required to allow a successful conversion. This was further complicated by the applicant’s wish not to lower the ceiling above the main bedroom.
We are particularly proud of the loft conversion which achieves acceptable head height and did not need to drop the ceiling over the first floor bedroom as this area was used as a raised sleeping platform.
