Due to the intense inter-war development, Brent borough is overflowing with properties built in the 1920s and 30s. The Tudor style becoming popular again in the 20s fuelled the "Mock-Tudor" architecture boom, exemplified by the renowned characteristics such as half timbering and herring bone red brickwork walls. The modern movement brought about in the following decade generated a new distinct architecture style that can be identified by the curved window designs. These style houses are suitable for a loft conversion to increase living space without making drastic changes to the original exterior of the house.
Majority of the borough is characterised with pitched roof houses. Hipped roofs, gable roofs and mansards are some typical roof types found in Brent Borough. Dormer conversions are popular among Building Owners in the Brent area to maximise roof space as they match the existing pitched roof style. When undertaking a loft conversion project, it is important to notify the neighbour of any changes to the Party Wall if going to take place. A Party Wall is a shared wall between walls between properties. A common notifiable work under the Act is the insertion of steel beams in to the party wall.
