NLA launched a competition last Autumn, in association with The Building Centre, Time Out and RIBA London, to find London's best and most innovative home extensions.
This exhibition displays the 32 shortlisted and winning schemes, which will provide inspiration for homeowners looking to create more space in their homes. The projects demonstrate a wide range of approaches to extending your home, including basement excavations, rooftop extensions, innovative mezzanine insertions, and entire retrofitting projects, which use a range of materials at a variety of budgets.
