Loft Conversion Origins

Converting Lofts Livingston ScotlandThough doing a loft conversion might be considered very "British", some of the early loft conversions and possibly the first ideas for transforming such spaces started in 1960's America. The location for this innovative building revolution was New York's Soho district, where stylish, new living environments were created by local designers, artists and the like in the upper areas of decrepit industrial buildings. The truth was that those zones and properties had not been allocated for this purpose, and thus were strictly speaking illegal in those times. It was not until 1971 that New York finally legalized this practise, and consequently various other districts of New York including Tribeca, Manhattan, Chelsea and Greenwich Village joined the revolution, and "loft living" was the in thing to do for the young, wealthy and talented. In Britain loft conversion is a desirable option particularly in big urban centres like Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham and London, where land is limited and any method by which to develop further living space without extending the footprint of a building is sought after.
