Zig Zag Loft
Addition of a loft room to a detached residential house in Lewisham to provide an extra bedroom and bathroom within the property. The massing of the new rear dormer clad in weathered corten steel is visually minimised by breaking it up into a series of alternating facets, creating a variety of light and shade on the new cladding and complementing the angular detailing found elsewhere on the property such as in the existing pitched roof of the extension below.
The reddish brown contemporary corten steel finish used in the dormer and matching window frames complementing the tone of the existing historic red brick banding details found on this and adjacent properties.
A central frameless glass window provides unobstructed views from the main bedroom with two smaller vertical slot windows can be used for natural ventilation. A circular skylight offering a contrasting curved geometry to the angular facets of the rear in this contemporary south london dormer loft.
