*다락방 리모델링 Con Form Architects opens up loft with a glass and steel dormer

자투리 공간, 다락방 리노베이션.

Con Form Architects has converted a small London loft into a bright home office by inserting a glazed section with a large steel dormer window.


Called Dormore – a portmanteaux of "dormer" and "more" – the loft conversion has turned a difficult, low-ceilinged space into a bright workspace for the client, who has started to work from home.

Con Form Archictects made a simple yet dramatic move of taking a large slice out of the back of the roof and infilling it with glazing, flooding the otherwise cramped attic space with light.

Rather than blending in with the surrounding roofs, the new dormer window has been placed atop this new glass roof section.

The dormer is wrapped in anthracite steel cladding, subtly marking it as distinct from the tiled roofs of the surrounding buildings.

"The large opening facilitates an intriguing, tactile relationship with the existing prominent brick chimney and parapet, typically confined to the otherwise distant world of roofscapes," said the studio.

Continuing the existing stairwell, a compact folded steel staircase leads up to the new loft space, passing a small roof terrace accessible via a large rotating window.
