loft?

loft noun
4. an upper story of a business building, warehouse, or factory, typically consisting of open, unpartitioned floor area.

If so, then full clue is direct, so is "elevated room"

Firm = company - if (provided) reversed (elevated) + rm (short for room)

YIKES! Quite the solve Lex.

Wonder why Pandora used "elevated";
"provided back room" would have been ok...
Give yourself 2 lashes, Sue!

A firm solve, Sir Lex! ===[**WCF**]===

Denis, don't forget that these clues are often part of a crossword grid. The Down clues can use words like "elevated" to indicate reversals. It's your Achilles heel. evil

I graciously accept the mantle!

Let's have two for the price of one: no connection except that they were both in a recent paper and were quite testing (for us, anyway!):

1. Severe, the south wind close to shore (7) - two es

2. Block, centre reportedly for US government agency (5,5) - two es

auster = south wind (yikes!)
