Innovating Extensions: Zinc and Charred Timber in Chelmsford

Redefining Extensions in Chelmsford: A Material Revolution by Connor Ferris Architects

In the vibrant city of Chelmsford, Essex, a daring vision for a single-storey rear extension was brought to life through the creative ingenuity of Connor Ferris Architects. Commissioned by a private client, this project stands as a beacon of modern architectural design, pushing the boundaries of material innovation with the use of Zinc and Charred Timber.

Pushing Design Boundaries

Project Overview: The core mission of the extension was to not only expand the living space but to do so in a manner that elevates the property’s aesthetic and functional value. In pursuit of a spectacular design, Connor Ferris Architects embarked on an experimental journey with materials, choosing Zinc and Charred Timber for their unique qualities and visual impact.

Innovative Material Use: Zinc, known for its durability and versatility, was selected for its sleek finish and ability to withstand the test of time, offering a modern yet timeless appeal. Charred Timber, treated through the ancient Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban, was chosen for its textured finish and natural resilience, providing a stark, beautiful contrast to the Zinc cladding. Together, these materials create a striking visual narrative that complements the extension’s contemporary design.

A Modern Marvel in Chelmsford: The single-storey rear extension in Chelmsford is more than an addition to a home; it’s a testament to the potential of modern materials to transform living spaces. The innovative use of Zinc and Charred Timber not only enhances the structural integrity and sustainability of the extension but also integrates beautifully with the existing architecture, setting a new standard for contemporary extensions.
