Grays, Essex

Breathing New Life into Grays, Essex: A Bungalow’s Transformation

At the heart of Essex, in the charming town of Grays, a remarkable transformation has taken place. A once modest 3-bed bungalow has been reimagined and expanded into a spacious, modern 5-bed house, courtesy of Connor Ferris Architects. This project not only showcases the innovative approach of Connor Ferris Architects but also serves as a beacon of architectural adaptability and aesthetic integration within the local community.

Project Insight: From Bungalow to Contemporary Home

The Vision: Tasked by a visionary client, Connor Ferris Architects set out to transform the existing structure into a family home that not only meets today’s living standards but exceeds them. The main goal was to create a living space that felt open, airy, and connected to its surroundings while respecting the architectural vernacular of Grays, Essex.

The Transformation: The cornerstone of this project was the addition of a 6-metre rear extension, featuring a distinctive double-ended gable design. This strategic expansion was aimed at maximising indoor space without compromising the bungalow’s character or the aesthetic harmony of the neighborhood.

Respecting the Local Vernacular: A key challenge was to ensure that the transformed front elevation harmonised with the existing local vernacular. Through meticulous design and material selection, Connor Ferris Architects achieved a seamless integration, enhancing the street view while elevating the property’s appeal.

Achieving Planning Permission: Navigating the complexities of local planning regulations, Connor Ferris Architects successfully obtained planning permission for this ambitious project. The approval marked a significant milestone, allowing the project to advance to the Building Regulations package and, ultimately, construction.

Next Steps: Building Regulations and Construction: With planning permission secured, the project is now poised to enter the next phase. Connor Ferris Architects will oversee the development of a detailed Building Regulations package, ensuring every aspect of the conversion meets stringent standards for safety, efficiency, and design integrity.
