ECO ARCHITECTURE SUSTAINABLE DESIGN LOW ENERGY RETROFIT
ENBEE RADIO INTERVIEW
enbee architecture + design has been involved in a variety of projects from contemporary extensions to works to listed buildings. From urban projects in the UK to an Alpine chalet and Caribbean Eco design.
The practice has a particular interest in low energy architecture, reusing materials and enhancing the fabric of the building to reduce heat loss; bringing down energy bills to lessen the impact on climate change.
We get the Bluepatch seal of approval, even making it into their latest promotional video, if short on time, feel free to scroll through to about 2 minutes in to see our shot in the limelight!
We're delighted to announce that B - House, Herne Hill was selected within the category of London's environmental leadership prize 2020. #dontmoveimprove @nlalondon
B-HOUSE, FERNDENE ROAD RETROFIT
COMPLETED IN 2018
Whole house retrofit and refurbishment to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Wood fibre insulation, lime plasters, triple glazing all enhance the existing fabric together with new efficient boiler and controls minimising the energy use of the building. The project makes use of low VOC materials such as lime paints, natural fibre carpets, a natural hardwax oil for the floors and reuses materials where possible.
"Thanks to enbee for helping us to see the potential for our home. They were able to make brilliant suggestions for space and storage solutions that we would never have thought of. They are friendly and approachable and we'd recommend enbee for anyone thinking about extending their home."
Clare Watkins, Regent Road, SE24
"I have worked with Natalie on projects in the UK & overseas and highly recommend her."
Neil Patrick, Bristol
"I crazily bought an awkward shaped plot in Jamaica for student rentals and couldn't imagine how to build on it. However Natalie did a brilliant job at designing the living space and accommodation, I often get spectacular feedback on the layout from my neighbours and especially the students, they really enjoy the living space because of its cool and contemporary design"

ELMAR HOUSE, SEVEN SISTERS
COMPLETED IN 2017
features in Don't Move Improve
"The outcome is wonderful. A joy to live in and a project which has added to our house value as much as our day to day enjoyment. We have everything we wanted from the project: more space, better fuel efficiency, practical solutions, neat design features and a home built
for a large family without feeling as if it’s a temple to children.
The improvements are too numerous to list – But what is obvious is the improvements Natalie’s made to a Victorian house – which now stays cool when the weather is too hot and cosy when it’s cold outside.
By the end of the project we’ve managed to survive a challenging time for any family. But we feel we’ve come through unscathed thanks to our support from enbee. Natalie has practically become a member of the family and we’ll miss her time and support when it’s all ended. We can’t have imagined getting such a good service and have been proud to recommend enbee to everyone we’ve spoken to."
