History of Loft Conversions

Converting Lofts Carterton OxfordshireThough the idea of a loft conversion might be thought of as very "British", some of the first loft conversions and probably the initial notions of remodeling loft spaces came about in the US in the 60's. The specific location for this building phenomenon was the Soho district of New York City, where stylish, new living spaces were developed by local artists, designers and the like in the upper parts of decrepit industrial properties. The situation was that those areas and structures weren't set aside for residential purposes, and consequently were considered illegal in those times. It wasn't until the early 1970's that New York City eventually legalized this practise, and subsequently various other areas of the city including Manhattan, Chelsea, Tribeca and Greenwich Village joined the revolution, and "loft living" was a no brainer for the young, talented and wealthy. In the United Kingdom converting a loft is an attractive proposition particularly in big cities such as Liverpool, Manchester, London and Birmingham, where land is scarce and any means by which to acquire more space without the need to extend the footprint of a building is justifiably welcome.
