Take advantage of low-rise interior spaces,
By converting unused areas hidden into roof space, homeowners can add additional bedrooms, playrooms, or simply give themselves more accessible storage space.
Without having to move house or apply for planning consent.
With more of our lives now happening under our roofs, the extra space provided by an attic conversion is more popular than ever.
However, without the ability to change the roof slope, low-rise areas of an attic room often remain unusable, and the resulting usable space is limited by how low their functionality is. By placing low-profile features and activities in these nooks and crannies, attic rooms can make the most of the space they have.

Use the corner space under the roof deck to add storage space

Apartment in Zvernas / HEIMA Architects

The main focus of this project was to bring as much light into the property as possible, but as all the main external walls are slanted, this left little space for storage.
Using as much of the diagonal wall below the windows as possible, a small row of block shelves extends across the entire width and depth of the living space and bedrooms.
This can allow the family home to be kept tidy, with storage space always at hand.

DOTS 2 Commercial Building and House / JYA-RCHITECTS
As a neighborhood living facility, this narrow building offers small rooms for rent, but squeezing in as many rooms and shared spaces as possible means there is little room for additional storage.
While part of the roof cavity was removed to make room for a well-lit outdoor balcony in the basement, the remaining space inside the attic was smaller.
Low-height shelving was also pushed back, expanding the usable space in the attic as much as possible and keeping the rest of the floor space open.

House F/Delugan Meissl Associated Architects

While the open kitchen of this rustic conversion doesn’t suffer from a lack of height, it puts every square inch of space available under its sloped ceiling to good use.
By angling the cabinet doors, a full-height and width wall is created for kitchen storage.

Use the forgotten space under the stairs

Belle Tree House Resort/Arsenite

At just 19 square meters over just one and a half levels, the Piil Tree House Retreat cabins need to pack a lot into a small space.
With a kitchen, dining room, office space and path leading upstairs, all required to fit a double bed,
The architects have innovatively used the basement cavity as bedside storage.

Elsternwick penthouse/Alex Nicholls office

On the surface, by combining two penthouse apartments, it seems that this project already has enough space. However, as an intergenerational family home, this is never enough.
The family may be brought together in a large space by a “library column” that begins “embedded in the staircase,” as the architects explain, and houses their collections of books, art and antiques for everyone to share.
