enbee architecture + design is an architectural practice located in Herne Hill, South East London.

At enbee, design and performance are equally important – reducing energy consumption and increasing comfort levels through the responsible application of low-energy retrofit measures. These are tackled through a fabric-first approach: insulating ground floors, external walls and roofs; reducing heat loss through windows; sealing up air gaps and controlling the ventilation; installing the latest energy-efficient heating system and controls; and the application of renewables e.g. solar panels, solar water heaters etc. All this is combined with reusing existing materials and using low-carbon building materials where possible.


enbee architecture + design was set up by Natalie Black in 2014. She gained experience working in a number of design-led architectural offices including AEM, Reading and West Architects, and Allies and Morrison Architects. While living in Jamaica for a few years between 2005-2007, Natalie set up enbee design, a furniture design company, which used local materials to produce hand made furniture on the island.
