Alec & Cheryl's Story
YellowDoor have designed us a beautiful and unusual loft conversion. The round porthole windows and open steel stair case in particular stand out. There were some minor issues, the original staircase design was deemed very difficult to build by the structural engineer and had to be redesigned, also planning rejected the original design as one of the roof windows considered to be to large. Overall we are very happy.

Modern loft conversion for a family home
We have converted the existing loft into a habitable space for use as an office and day bedroom with ensuite.
To create a dedicated office space and a guest bedroom for the growing family.
The existing home is now connected with the new loft by way of a bespoke designed steel, timber and glass staircase within the existing stair well. This stair design with the new rooflight above has helped to allow for as much light as possible to penetrate the existing circulation space within the home.
We have created ample additional storage together with an additional room for the family to grow into.
Bow Locks, London
This bespoke staircase, made from steel, timber and glass, allows for the essential connection from the first floor to the newly converted loft.
The landing area floats within the double height stairwell, illuminated by the vast Velux window positioned in the pitched roof above. The glass balustrade allows for the maximum amount of light to pass uninterrupted inside and through the stair whist providing protection.
The timber treads and landing are made from reclaimed floorboards which have been sanded back and finished with Danish oil. In contrast with these rustic timber treads sits the slim glossy steel stringer which marries the three materials perfectly to create an open and minimalist stair.
