Ultimate loft living in Bristol

When faced with an immense space, it is vital to really get to grips with its scale so that any elements you add are in proportion. This converted Malt House was built in the 1850s and was previously owned by Guinness. This listed property was converted into apartments in 1995 and now the customer wanted us to redesign the space to accommodate extra bedrooms.

Here the spectacular spiral staircase, which manages to be both lightweight yet dominant, is the centrepiece of the main living space. It takes you, in a dramatic fashion, up to the two new bedrooms and the exciting viewing platform & gallery from where you can look out over the city.

Customer Story

We wanted to add 2 extra bedrooms to the apartment to accommodate the needs of our growing family and Roger managed this by creating a really interesting viewing platform and gallery that overlooks the city. The viewing gallery is accessed by a spiral staircase that has become a feature of the main living area. The building is listed but the conservation officer actually liked the way Architect Your Home had contrasted the modern with the traditional within the property, so permission was reasonably straightforward. The renovation took approximately 6 months.

It was great to work with Roger and Architect Your Home as you got to be part of the process. His solution was really imaginative and the listed building officer really liked it. He sorted everything out with knowledge and professionalism which made it very easy for us.
