Before and After: a Loft Extension in Hove

This week DMB takes a look back at a unique loft conversion in central Hove. 

This Brighton & Hove based business man came to us to extend his home without drastically affecting the appearance of the exterior. We decided a loft conversion would prove to be the best option in order to create space where their would be a great view out to sea.


DMB designed plans to replace the old chimney, place in steel work to support the new flooring, dormer walls and roof and create an opening for a new staircase from the 1st floor level.

Our customer had chosen a variation of windows to best suit the layout of their new space. As you can see from the above images two velux windows were fitted at the front of the property, which let in lots of light and saving money on electricity bills in the long run. However, what makes this design unique is the fitting of a bull’s eye window, or ‘oeil-de-boef’ in traditional French baroque style, at the very front of the conversion. These are often typical for upper storeys and can sometimes be placed on a roof slope as a dormer or even above a door to give extra light.


The space was finished off with neutral carpeting and a white satin finish paint job for our customer to add his own stamp on his brand new space.

If you are interested in a similar experience you can read up on our DMB specialist loft service here. Alternatively you can call our office number on 01273 777459 or email us at enquiries@dmb-solutions.co.uk and a qualified member of our team will be able to assist you.
