Two Storey House Extension
Hampstead, NW London
MB Master Builders

We at MB Master Builders have recently completed this contemporary two-storey house extension in Hampstead, North London, which was designed by Stuart Less from https://leesarchitects.co.uk/. The client required a contemporary two-storey extension to their Victorian period home. The property sits on a steep slope, so we took advantage of this by creating a half basement with doors out into the garden.

Original features were retained in the extension - the bay was incorporated into the living room, instead of being demolished. Internal flemish bond brick feature wall along with vast expanses of glass was used to develop the contemporary aesthetic. Double height voids and roof lights were implemented to create vistas of both the external natural elements of the garden and the existing house features such as the chimney.

Hampstead Two-Storey House Extension Case Study 

Our clients in Hampstead already had a small house extension, but when they found themselves needing more space, they decided to add another one next to it, as well as a vast half-basement expansion under the new home extension and a wine cellar under the existing one. 

To start with the construction, our skilled team first started the excavation and underpinning in preparation of the basement area, while keeping the rest of the house protected according to all the relevant regulations. Then we moved onto the construction of the concrete floor and wall structure for the lower storey. We have constructed the lower storey of the extension in a flemish bond brick pattern, while the upper storey was plastered to match the rest of the house. The walls have been insulated, and our team of plumbers have fitted wet underfloor heating which can be operated by a smartphone app for the clients' comfort. Our team of decorators plastered and painted the walls, while our carpenters fitted the wood flooring. For a contemporary feel, we have added several modern features to this bespoke home expansion project, including a glass bridge, internal and external glass balustrade, sliding glass doors, brick feature wall, and frameless skylights.
