Bespoke Edinburgh residential extension completed
Oliver Chapman Architects have completed a bespoke expansion of an end of terrace Victorian property on Trinity Road, Edinburgh, to accommodate a new summer and garden room.

Exploiting the south east orientation of an existing bedroom the insertion involved creation of a hard landscaped terrace, defined by a line of free standing oak pillars, to resolve some awkward site geometry.

The end product is intended as a deliberate contrast to the main house the addition incorporates hand split oak shakes, copper cladding and a sedum roof which supports a range of heather and moss varieties.

Engineer David Narro Associates and contractor MacKenzie Hughes Property Services collaborated with the architects on the build.
