Loft Conversion Origins

Converting Lofts Perth Scotland

Although the idea of a loft conversion might appear to be very "British", some of the first loft conversions and possibly the first notions of transforming such spaces came about in the United States in the nineteen sixties. The specific location for this building revolution was the Soho district of New York, where cool, new living areas were built by designers and artists in the higher levels of neglected industrial structures. In actual fact these areas and structures weren't designated for this purpose, and hence were considered illegal in the day. It was not until 1971 that New York City finally made this practise legal, and consequently many other districts of New York including Tribeca, Chelsea, Greenwich Village and Manhattan followed suit, and "loft living" was popular for the talented, wealthy and young. In Great Britain doing a loft conversion is a desirable option particularly in large population centres such as Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and London, where building space is pricey and any way to gain further space without having to extend the structure's footprint is popular.
