History of Loft Conversions

While doing a loft conversion may be considered a rather "British" thing, the early loft conversions and the initial ideas for remodeling lofts started in America in the 60's. The location for this building phenomenon was the Soho district of New York City, where new, fashionable living areas were created by artists and designers in the higher sections of long neglected industrial structures. In actual fact these industrial buildings and areas weren't allotted for this purpose, and as such were strictly speaking illegal at the time. It wasn't until nineteen seventy one that New York City finally made this practise legal, and subsequently many other parts of the city such as Tribeca, Chelsea, Manhattan and Greenwich Village followed suit, and "loft living" was a no brainer for the young, wealthy and talented. In Britain converting a loft is a desirable concept particularly in large urban centres such as London, Manchester, Sheffield and Birmingham, where space is scarce and any means to acquire further space without the need to extend the structure's footprint is popular.
