The owners wanted to have a private area away from the rest of the family where they could relax quietly and have some privacy.  The attic was semi-finished prior to the renovation, however the owners wished to add a 3rd bathroom to the house and make the 3rd floor fully functional.  The first issue with making this area useful was the correction of the severely sloping floor (see the first photo in the top row below) using laminated beams.  The tall roof peaks make for a fantastic looking space that is both inviting and functional.
