Loft Conversions - The Beginnings

Converting Lofts Ilkeston Derbyshire

While the concept of a loft conversion might be thought of as very "British", the earliest loft conversions and maybe the first ideas for transforming such spaces originated in the US in the 60's. The neighbourhood involved in this building revolution was New York's Soho district, where new, chic living environments were developed by local artists and designers in the upper levels of run down industrial buildings. In actual fact those properties and zones were not set aside for residential usage, and therefore were mainly illegal in those times. It was not until nineteen seventy one that New York eventually made this practise legal, and subsequently various other parts of New York including Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Tribeca and Manhattan joined the revolution, and "loft living" was popular for the wealthy, talented and young. In the United Kingdom loft conversion is an attractive proposition especially in big population centres like Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and London, where land is costly and any means to gain more space without extending the structure's footprint is welcomed.
