How do you turn a one-bedroom maisonette into a light, airy and sociable Parisian-style apartment? 

This was the challenge facing Shacklewell Architects. Their solution was to expand the property upwards and open the space below, by creating a Mansard roof extension to house the bedroom and bathroom. The bottom floor was then turned into a large open plan kitchen, living and dining area. 

Of course, flooring is a big part of any property transformation. So, to add to the apartment’s chic style, a wide-plank wooden flooring from Havwoods was selected to complement the new look. These single 200mm+ planks accentuate the feeling of space in large, free-flowing areas, a colour and finish that complemented the rest of the fixtures and fittings.
