mansard loft conversion and rear extension interior 3d visualisation


We worked with a property developer to design a mansard loft conversion and rear extension. The property was a large but overlooked family home in North London with fantastic potential.

The focus for this home was to improve the layout and increase available space. We achieved this by extending into the courtyard and designing a mansard loft conversion.

In order to maintain a good amount of natural light, we designed a light-well through both storeys of the rear extension. It serves both the ground floor living room as it’s only source of natural light, and the second storey kitchen extension. The mansard roof was also a really exciting opportunity to keep some valuable outdoor space and add an extra bedroom.

We made an exterior 3D digital model of the home to check it’s impact on surrounding houses by doing a solar path analysis. Consequently this helped us see if the rear and mansard roof extensions blocked too much natural light for their neighbours. Interior 3D visualisation also help us to see what the space is like inside and how well the light-well works.
