Hammersmith is quickly becoming one of the most popular suburbs of West London for families and young professionals to settle down and flourish. It lies just five miles outside of the city centre, bordering Fulham, Chiswick, and Shepard’s Bush, and offers homebuyers and investors an eclectic mix of classic London architecture, riverside flats, and new builds in
the recently refurbished parts of the area. There is plenty of green space for locals, including Ravenscourt Park with open grass spaces, a lake, a children’s lido area, and a famous tree trail that features some of the rarest and most beautiful trees in the country. The verdant and leafy walkways alongside the River Thames offer a cooling and shady retreat for residents to enjoy during the hot summer months and there is no shortage of pubs and cafes nearby to grab a refreshing pint or a caffeine fix.
There are plenty of leisure centres, gyms, and sports centres dotted around the area, alongside football pitches, tennis courts, and a thriving, active fitness community.
As part of the London Zone 2 transport system, Hammersmith is one of the best-connected districts of the capital. There are three different tube lines and a large bus station that acts as a central hub of activity for the area. There is also a direct underground line to Heathrow Airport making business trips easy, and holidays hassle-free. Shopaholics will be spoilt for choice along the main thoroughfare of King Street, and inside the Kings Mall shopping centre. Although there are not as many indie stores or boutiques as some neighbouring areas, there is no shortage of household brands and picking up everyday essentials is easy.
Hammersmith is perhaps best known as a centre of art and culture, largely thanks to the world-famous rock venue Hammersmith Apollo and the Lyric Theatre that puts on a diverse array of shows. The Apollo regularly attracts some of the biggest musical acts in the world, and has played host to Oasis, Kylie Minogue and Queen. There are many more music, theatre, and comedy venues throughout Hammersmith, with acts playing every night to ensure locals are never short of entertainment or culture.

Loft Conversion in Hammersmith and Home Extension in Hammersmith
1. What type of loft conversion in Hammersmith can I get?
When it comes to making changes to your home, we understand that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for everybody. Consider the purpose and size of your potential loft conversion, as well as its intended purpose, before going ahead with a project. We can build any type of loft conversion in Hammersmith, including the three most popular designs:
- The rear dormer- extends from a sloped roof into a box.
- The Velux conversion- installing Velux windows into your existing loft space, keeping the original shape and structure.
- The hip-to-gable conversion- a standard flat gable roof that replaces a sloped hip roof, extending your floor and ceiling space.
We can help you understand the possible types of conversion you can get that suit your property.
2. Will converting my loft require planning permission?
You usually won’t need to obtain planning permission beforehand, since loft conversion is considered as a ‘permitted development’.
There are plenty of listed buildings around and opportunities for both a loft conversion and home extension in Hammersmith, since it is a historical borough of London, and it is vitally important to avoid making alterations to any property that can land you a sizeable fine. It’s always a good idea to check with your local Hammersmith council before making any alterations to your home.
3. Is a loft conversion really worthwhile when it comes to adding value to my home?
The Nationwide Building Society cite a loft conversion as one the quickest and most cost-effective ways to add value to your home, so it’s definitely worth considering as an investment rather than an expense. A thoroughly planned and expertly constructed loft conversion can immediately add around 20% to the value of your home in Hammersmith!
4. Can you help me plan my loft conversion in Hammersmith?
We at the Market Design Build are with you every step of the way when it comes to your loft conversion. We strive to provide a reliable service with excellent avenues of communication, from conception and planning to construction and costs, right through to the finishing touches, we will take the stress out of the whole process. We can plan the initial design based on your desires and ideas, help you to remain within your budget, and deliver the best possible value for money.
5. Are there other options to expand my home with a home extension in Hammersmith?
There absolutely is! If a loft conversion isn’t possible due to structural or spatial requirements, then a home extension could be the perfect space solution for you. At The Market Design Build, we’re known as professional home extension experts, with a host of successful case studies behind us. Our friendly and expertly equipped team can help to create:
- Side return extensions, which use disuses space to the rear or side of your property.
- Kitchen extensions, which can add value to your home by extending your kitchen.
- Single and double storey rear extensions, which are perfect for properties such as terraced houses that do not have a side return, and expand into your existing garden space.
- Wrap around extensions, creating an L-shaped extension that can completely transform how you live in your home by using the best features of all those mentioned above.
Planning permission for home extensions is usually not needed and laws allow for a single-storey expansion of up to six metres. We are here to help with any questions you may have about any planning laws or permissions.
