Joppa Two

Joppa Two
a449 LTD were appointed to reconfigure the ground floor of a Victorian terrace in Joppa, Edinburgh. The radical approach was to completely remove the side and rear walls at ground floor level to allow the building to extend to the boundary and enable the new larger kitchen to open up to the south facing garden.

A cranked double beam arrangement was designed to support the corner of the building above without the need for a column that would compromise the internal layout. Although concealed from view externally, a new continuous roof light over the main kitchen space pushes light deeper into the plan while maintaining the simple pitched roof form that satisfied planning requirements.
