Ground Floor Rear Extension

This project really allowed our architects to shine, as their design expertise were put to play. This resulted in a stylish and unique rear extension, that really stands out from the crowd. This project was carried out under a Lawful Development Certificate (meaning the homeowner was operating under their permitted development rights), which was granted on 24th August 2018.

Meet Alessio, the Lead Designer

Our client was looking to undergo a ground floor rear extension on their semi-detached home in Chelmsford. The aim of this project was to create space for an enlarged and open plan kitchen dining, and living area. Their ‘must have’ details were the inclusion of a downstairs WC, utility room (or cupboard), a log burner, and roof lights. Their preferred style was modern, light, experimental, and quirky.


I designed a plan that extended the home 6m out towards the rear, which held an open plan dining, living, and kitchen area. The dining area was placed at a slightly lower level than the kitchen in order to break up the space. The new extension was designed with some unique qualities - a log burner at the rear and a gable end roof, to name a few. To meet the client’s specifications I added in a utility cupboard, WC, and understairs cupboard. To ensure the new space was filled with natural light, I incorporated six large rooflights, and the whole of the rear wall was glazed
