Oliver Chapman unwraps Edinburgh house extension
[First look + plans] Oliver Chapman Architects has completed this end-of-terrace Victorian home extension in Edinburgh
The project on Trinity Road close to the Firth of Forth created a south-east facing garden room and bedroom with a hard landscaped terrace.
The design features hand-split oak shakes, copper cladding panels and a sedum roof.
According to the practice, the scheme resolves the ‘awkward geometry’ of the space while its material palette acts as a ‘deliberate contrast to the traditional stonework of the main house’.
A statement explained: ‘The new Garden Room helps reconnect the house to the garden and creates a pared back, light filled refuge as a place to read or just watch the changing seasons.’
