Regency Dormer, Edinburgh

Lofty zinc extension

Konishi Gaffney Architects for a private client

Contract value: £32,000

Challenging more traditional approaches, this low profile dormer window, elegantly detailed, transforms the home.

Conservative planning rules and a lack of headroom were overcome to extend a first-floor flat into a loft and create a new bedroom. After long negotiations a long rear dormer, clad in anthracite zinc by French artists, was agreed.
