Mapei were specified by Lipton Plant Architects after distinct plans were made with their London-based client to help with an extension on Wolsey Road.
Its design was shaped around the history of the area with inspiration from the significant ‘Newington Green Gardens’, creating the illusion of a forest inside the property.
Using a palette of simple materials, the extension to the house’s roof by GMS Building Services has created a bedroom and en-suite. The new space provides a haven in the treetops, flooded with light and warmed by timber.
Mapei’s Ultracolor Plus was specified for the addition of the en-suite bathroom. The water and abrasion resistant, flexible grout was used between standard white tiles on the floor and walls in the colour Terra di Siena, with the theme of copper and brass used throughout the extension to complement the colour of the wood.
