enbee architecture + design is an architectural practice located in Herne Hill, South East London.
We are passionate about combining aesthetic design with the most up-to-date practices in environmental architecture – 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. In 2006 she set up enbee design, a design company based in Jamaica, which used local materials to produce furniture on the island.
