Somerset Country House Attic Conversion & Observatory

This fabulous conversion of the original servants’ quarters of country house into a flexible apartment with fantastic south-facing roof terrace looking over the undulating Somerset hills required complete refurbishment. 


Our brief was to convert as much of the attic floor as possible into a flexible, well-appointed apartment with two bedrooms and bathrooms, an indoor open plan living/kitchen/dining area, plus an exceptional roof terrace equipped with a observatory. After surveying the original building a variety of new plans were explored before arriving at the final designs.


“We have loved working with Philip. He has both honed in on our style and the
kinds of things we love at the same time as giving us fresh ideas and suggestions.”
