Rear House Extension 
Hampstead, London
MB Master Builders

We at MB Master Builders have recently completed this contemporary looking rear house extension in North London, which was designed by Stuart Lees from Lees Architects Limited. The brick walls helped the expansion fit with the surroundings while keeping its charming personality. The combination of the industrial style steel framed glass panel doors and a large roof-light allows a wealth of warmth and natural light in.

The interior was designed by the property owner Michael Dunk, whose company – Lucent Lighting designed and supplied all the spotlights as well as the pendant lights that are conveniently placed right above the large dining table. The red dining chairs and the fun, bright orange 40s style butterfly sling chairs add yet more colour to the interior. Standing proudly next to the sofa is the owners beloved original 1958 AMI I 200 Vinyl Jukebox. Finally, to adhere to the period style theme, large light up canvas poster featuring a collage of famous artwork from the 60s has been hung above the wooden shabby chic sideboard.

Building a contemporary extension in Barnet - Case Study

Our client in Barnet, North London, wanted to add an extra room that would bring some light into his house and express his personality. We achieved this by adding a large rear house extension. The brick walls helped the expansion fit with the surroundings. Our client opted for industrial style steel framed glass panel doors to be installed. For a real contemporary look, we have built an interior flemish bond brick feature wall on one side of the extension, which contrasts beautifully with the cream coloured sofa sitting in front of it.

We started the construction by demolishing the existing conservatory and preparing the foundations. Then we constructed the block and beam wall and roof structure. We had made the plumbing and electric connections ready for the underfloor heating. To build the walls, we used bricks that matched the ones used on the original house perfectly - we then comleted the flat roof and added a large skylight. After fitting the glass panel doors, we had installed the underfloor heating. Finally, we moved onto the internal finishes such as plaster, skim, paint and floor tiles.
