Mansard Loft Conversions Newcastle

The Mansard style of loft conversion was first developed during the 1600's thanks to a well known architect known as Mansart (not Mansard). It was developed to be a great space creating process which would gain an enormous level of supplementary liveable space where previously there was none. This sort of conversion can only be employed on pitched roofs and additional space is fashioned by building up one wall (generally at the back of a home) and also flattening out the top of the roof, consequently creating a virtually box appearance. The finished angle of the built up wall should be at least seventy two degrees. It will often be the situation that the wall which requires lifting is a party wall with a neighbour (particularly in a house in a terrace), which means you will want the collaboration of your immediate neighbour - yet another concern if they are difficult to get on with!

History of Loft Conversion

Whilst the concept of a loft conversion may be considered very "British", some of the early loft conversions and possibly the initial ideas for remodeling such spaces began in America in the Sixties. The location for this building revolution was New York's Soho district, where stylish, new living environments were built by artists and the like in the higher parts of neglected industrial buildings. In actual fact such industrial buildings and zones were not set aside for this purpose, and thus were to all intents and purposes illegal in the day. It was not until 1971 that New York at long last made this practise legal, and thereafter many other parts of the city including Greenwich Village, Tribeca, Chelsea and Manhattan joined the revolution, and "loft living" was a no brainer for the talented, young and wealthy. In the UK converting a loft is a desirable concept particularly in big urban centres such as Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester and London, where space is expensive and any way to gain further living space without having to extend the structure's footprint is sought after.
