Joppa Cottage Home

Des Moines, IA

In partnership with local non-profit Joppa Outreach, we designed this small but high-quality home to provide transitional shelter for residents on a fixed income. The home was designed to fit into the existing Des Moines, Iowa, neighborhood aesthetic despite its overall reduced size. In just 384 square feet, it provides a living room, fully-outfitted kitchen, a private bedroom and a bathroom with a storage closet. The vaulted ceiling and large windows add plenty of natural light to create an open, roomy, bright feeling within the otherwise modest space.
