benchmark furniture loft extension
MLDE were commissioned by acclaimed furniture designers and manufacturers, Benchmark. An interesting and unusual project involving the insertion of a new floor structure into an existing loft space. In order to maximise headroom, and minimise floor depth, a Laminated Veneered lumber floor was provided, suspended from a series of stainless steel wire hangers. Galvanised Steel A-Frames were inserted to support these hangers and to ensure that loading on the existing roof trusses was not increased.
