Maida Vale

Maida Vale

Exposed London stock brick, meets frameless glazing, meets industrial chic in this modern interpretation of industrial London.

Tucked away down a quiet road in Maida Vale, London, this unassuming property at glance perfectly blends in with its neighbours. As with many properties in London it all starts with a narrow entrance opening out as you venture further in. Everything leads to the rear of the property and the inviting new extension.

There is a careful balance of materials evident throughout this project, the use of frameless glazing and slim profiled doors matched with a grey powder coated finish, carefully selected to ensure the industrial concrete polished worktops and pendant lights don’t feel out of place.

Each item marries together and appears to have been selected for its pure raw form, this concept continues into the selection of the furniture with a bespoke salvaged scaffold board table, industrial lighting and bronze tap. The Sharp corners of the rear façade compliment this approach drawing the eye whilst creating a feeling of height in a small space.


This modern extension is finished off by picture framing the garden with slim profile doors, ensuring the space does not feel small or closed in. The outside is seamlessly invited in with a continued flush finish threshold and similar coloured floor tiles. This all leads to a modular garden room ‘office’, again maximising space within the property.

A final finishing touch adds yet another layer into the overall design with a built in heated concrete bench that continues ‘through’ the glass to create a dynamic garden space with its own independent usable spaces. Perhaps the perfect space to catch the days end sun setting.
