EBBA ARCHITECTS are an emerging architecture and design practice interested in the construction of high quality, materially conscious and socially engaged spaces. They create buildings, places and objects through collaborative processes and the close involvement of clients to help drive the development of all projects. 

The work is defined by functional and elegantly crafted responses that employ inventive solutions to complex situations, always striving to test materials, construction techniques, proportion and form. They have been recognised for delivering thoughtful projects across diverse scales and sectors, including spatial environments for communities, art and cultural institutions, and galleries, as well as private commissions in the sectors of retail and residential design. Their most recent projects are the re-dressing of a school in Spain and series of small public works in Greenwich, with current projects including a children’s nursery in Manchester, a photography studio and an exhibition on fashion photography in Hong Kong.

All of the work is characterised by an understanding of place.
