Mansard Conversions

The Mansard kind of doing loft conversions was first seen sometime in the 1600's the brainwave of a famous architect known as Francois Mansart. It was intended as a handy way of creating living space which could yield a massive degree of further liveable space where there wasn't any before. This style of conversion is only added to roof which are pitched and the space is created by building up one wall (often to the rear of the property or home) and leveling out the top of the roof, hence creating a near box contour. The angle of the wall that's raised have got to be a minimum of seventy two degrees. It will often be the case that the wall needing to be heightened is shared with a neighbour (particularly with houses in a terrace block), so this means you will need your neighbour's co-operation - an extra worry if they're difficult to get along with!

Origins of Loft Conversion

Converting Lofts Flint Wales

Whilst doing a loft conversion may seem like rather "British", some of the earliest loft conversions and probably the initial notions of transforming lofts came about in the United States in the 1960's. The exact location for this revolutionary building revolution was the Soho district of New York, where new, trendy living environments were created by local designers and artists in the upper levels of tumbledown industrial buildings. The situation was that such buildings and areas had not been allocated for this purpose, and thus were considered illegal at the time. It was not until the early 70's that New York City finally made this practise legal, and subsequently several other districts of the city including Tribeca, Manhattan, Greenwich Village and Chelsea followed suit, and "loft living" was popular for the wealthy, young and talented. In the UK loft conversion is an extremely desirable option in huge population centres like Liverpool, Birmingham, London and Manchester, where building space is scarce and any method by which to develop additional living space without having to extend the footprint of a structure is welcome.
