Joppa Cottage Home

Des Moines, IA

Working with Joppa Outreach, a local non-profit in Des Moines, IA, we designed a small but high-quality home that will provide shelter to those with a small fixed income. The home was designed to mix in with the existing neighborhood aesthetic despite its overall reduced size. There’s a living room, kitchen with smaller than standard appliances, a bedroom and a bathroom with a storage closet. The raised ceiling and large windows add plenty of natural light into the space to create an open, roomy, bright feel to the otherwise modest space.
