A robust project completed last year to enlarge a family home. Taking inspiration from Florentian palaces with heavy rusticated bases and big timber entrances, the rear facade now gives a certain grandeur to the house and allows the large openings to extend the sense of enclosed space to the paved section of garden. The interior plays between the large sculpted ceiling and the delicate column, providing space for an airy and well proportioned kitchen/dining area. The project was realised on an incredibly tight budget while still managing to deliver a sense of craft through careful detailing and robust materials. Continue reading EBBA

EBBA have been working with the London Legacy Development Corporation on an exciting project to deliver a center for construction skills learning. In collaboration with CITB and TFL, the construction school provides the opportunity for people to be sponsored through practical education and training. Phase 1 of the construction skills school was completed in the summer of 2021. EBBA have helped to deliver the project after being appointed to design the scheme for the Olympic Park. The public scheme, which will be run by the Construction Industry Training Board and the Skills Centre, is set to be in use for the next 4 years and will provide valuable skills based on “hands-on” learning to local people in the area.

Bankside Loft is a minimal apartment refurbished by EBBA Architects in London. The open plan arrangement is intended to provide a bright space for flexible living and working. As part of the refurbishment walls were removed helping to open up the apartment, revealing the molded concrete frame of the existing building. Either side of the structure sit two mezzanines that make use of the tall ceilings, offering more private areas for sleeping and study above. Functional areas such as kitchen and bathroom sit under the mezzanines with in built storage maximising the use of the space. The plan is designed for cooking and working on one side while living and sleeping on the other, with potential for most areas to be interchanged through loose furniture.
