    Bonjour à tous!

    Est-ce qu'on peut m'aider avec cette phrase - "élevé d'un étage"?

    La phrase parle d'une construction qui est élevée d'un étage. "Made one storey higher" ne veut rien dire en anglais.

    Merci d'avance!

    :) Welcome to the forum, SouriezLaJoconde.

    Would "one story / level high / tall" make sense in your context?

    Not particularly, Pete. I think it's a two-story building, at least for part of the building. So it's one-story on one part and two-story on another.

    I'm even confused about how to say it in English!

    Merci!

    In this case I think you have to simply explain what it is. I believe something like "with a second story/floor used as..." would work.
