Question: Matrix augmentation

I have a 4 by 4 matrix that I need to augment to a 7 by 7 matrix.

I find I can use the "|" operator to append a column to my original matrix. So I can do this three times and I have a 4 by 7 matrix.

Now, the only way I have found to add the three rows I still need to add is to transpose, use "|" three times and to transpose back. While this indeed works it is rather clumsy and probably not efficient.

Is there a better way to do that better; i.e. is there a way to directly append rows to a matrix?
