A high-end loft extension maximising the properties potential by adding a fourth bedroom, dressing room and bathroom to a family home in Essex. The aim was to create a sleek luxurious retreat for the homeowners while adding an extra 25sqm of habitable space.

The loft bedroom suite has been designed with an open plan dressing space and a separate ensuite. The inclusion of a low partition separates the dressing room and thus increases the sense of volume in the room. Throughout the entire extension a refined attention to detail was important for the client, which is evident through the unifying colour pallet and finely executed finishing touches within the bedroom and ensuite.

The addition of two dormer windows maximises natural light to the dressing room, whilst a refined sliding door system and glass balustrade offer uninterrupted views of the garden and beyond.
