A proposed new build house in Joppa, Edinburgh. The house occupies an existing narrow triangular plot which is extensively overgrown. It is designed to sit carefully in one corner, maximising the extent of retained trees and shrubs and enhancing that where possible to increase the biodiversity of the site. The house is timber post and beam construction to minimise disruption of tree roots, the triangular footprint and mono pitch roof together creating a simple but elegant wedge shaped form which is substantially single storey but with access to a roof deck at one end.
