Redefining Living Spaces: Single Storey Rear Extension in Chelmsford

Chelmsford, Essex.

Expanding Horizons in Chelmsford: A Contemporary Extension by Connor Ferris Architects

In the bustling yet picturesque city of Chelmsford, Essex, a home receives a significant lifestyle uplift through the addition of a single-storey rear extension, thoughtfully designed by Connor Ferris Architects. This project not only amplifies the home’s living space but also seamlessly integrates outdoor living with the comfort of the indoors.

A Vision of Openness and Leisure

Creating the Perfect Gathering Space: The primary goal of this extension was to enhance the home’s communal areas — the lounge and dining space — creating an open, airy environment for family gatherings, entertainment, and relaxation. Connor Ferris Architects achieved this by designing a layout that encourages flow and connectivity, making the home feel more spacious and welcoming.

Blurring the Lines Between Indoors and Outdoors: Understanding the client’s desire for an adaptable outdoor living area, the design includes a covered external space, perfect for hosting BBQs and featuring an outdoor TV. This thoughtful addition ensures the extension serves as a year-round hub for leisure and entertainment, blurring the lines between indoor comfort and the joy of being outside.

Aesthetic Cohesion with a Modern Twist: To maintain aesthetic cohesion with the existing structure while introducing a contemporary element, the extension was designed with a red brick parapet roof. This design choice not only complements the traditional aspects of the property’s architecture but also offers a flush design from the rear elevation, presenting a sleek and modern outline that enhances the property’s overall appearance.
