Origins of Loft Conversion

Converting Lofts Bedlington Northumberland

Whilst the concept of a loft conversion may seem like rather "British", the first loft conversions and the first notions of transforming lofts came about in the United States during the 1960's. The specific location for this imaginative building revolution was New York's Soho district, where fashionable, new living areas were developed by designers and artists in the upper parts of decrepit industrial structures. In actual fact these industrial buildings and areas had not been allotted for residential purposes, and consequently were mainly illegal at the time. It wasn't until the early 70's that New York ultimately legalized this practise, and after this various other areas of the city including Manhattan, Chelsea, Tribeca and Greenwich Village joined the revolution, and "loft living" became the in thing to do for the talented, young and wealthy. In Britain loft conversion is an appealing option particularly in big urban centres like London, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester, where space is expensive and any method by which to achieve more living space without having to extend the footprint of a structure is welcome.
