Loft conversion with rear dormer extension located in Wanstead E11, East London. The original property was a 2 storey period terraced family house with rear out-rigger and rear garden. The stair was extended up to the loft level. A roof window and large trapezoidal rear window to the stair provided lots of daylight to the interior and view out. Glazed steel framed fire rated internal doors provided high quality fittings and a contemporary feel to the interior. Generous glazed sliding full height doors with a glass balustrade allows the loft space to be fully opened up in the summer months […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Hardcastle Architects became involved in this project a number of years ago when the Truman Brewery was mainly unused and before the majority of the re-development was carried out as seen today. The original cafe founders approached us to set up the cafe putting an initial design and layout together and arranging the installation of the basic services, facilities and finishes. The cafe has gone through a number of changes since and continues to enjoy success.<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

The existing house is a period\u00a04 storey terraced house in Hackney East London.\u00a0The householder approached us to re-model the entire house suitable for contemporary city living. A number of proposals were looked at re-organising the house to various extents. The final proposal shifts the stair to the rear rising through a\u00a0full height lightwell using screen printed glazing to filter views and daylight in and out. A top floor solarium is\u00a0added with external terrace for private city sun bathing during the summer months. All of the interior is fully re-modelled and contemporary in style to\u00a0suit current lifestyles. Private client<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

The existing school toilets were not ideally placed around the school:\u00a0no toilets were directly accessible from the playground; and all\u00a0in need of refurbishment. Working with the school we came up with a plan to\u00a0consolidate all of the toilets together with direct access from the playground and from the main school corridor. At break time the toilets would only be accessible from the playground, and during lessons only accessible from inside. The toilets were arranged to allow for\u00a0good direct passive supervision from the corridor and playground\u00a0via glazed entry doors looking directly along the cubicle frontages and vanity area.
