The steelwork for the new mezzanine in Pont Street was installed last week by ISM Design. The space is starting to take shape after a long period dedicated to party wall issues, landlords’ permissions and adjustments to the proposed scheme.
We’ve been asked by our client to renovate this flat by creating a new mezzanine, offering more floor area and an open space underneath. The existing flat was a “modern bachelor pad” that needed a few adjustments to fit our client requirements and create an atmosphere better suited for living and studying. We’ve proposed a new column free mezzanine providing a big living and dining area underneath. We’ve allowed natural light to go deep inside the flat by having generous full height areas in front of the windows.
The next step consists of completing the floor and the ceiling for the new mezzanine, a glass balustrade with timber handrail and a purpose made curved nosing on the edge of the mezzanine designed specifically to reduce the structural impact of the steelwork.
