A major reworking and extension of a Georgian house in Portobello, Edinburgh. The conservatory extension is fabricated using mitred steel angle frames which also form the door frames. Between adjoining frames is clamped a steel tee section rafter onto which the glass roof is silicon bonded with a cantilever front edge inspired by the image of a breaking wave. A sliver of Perspex vertically between each angle frame further enhances the transparency of the fa├žade. JKA produced full fabrication drawings for the steelwork elements and designed a bespoke countersunk bolt fixing to ensure the aesthetic criteria were delivered through to the detail. Built in furniture was also designed by JKA including an inside/outside dining table in steel and oak.

The project was published in Homes and Interiors Scotland magazine.
