It’s a funny thing — living in London at 51 degrees latitude — and having palm trees waving about in gardens, roundabouts and pots. I imagine this has something to do with Kew Gardens and its history of cataloguing flora from all over the world as well as propogating some within its grounds and green houses. The palm tree is one of these gems. When one has a giant specimen growing in the back garden and the opportunity arises to convert the loft, how could one not take advantage of creating an aspect that celebrates that astounding view. And this loft, built by Cube Lofts of Teddington, does just that. It’s the largest picture window I’ve ever seen on a house. But it opens up as well! With a glazed balcony that seems to float, it’s simply spectular. For this loft conversion, it’s most definitely all about the view.
