New practices: Tom Ebdon Architects

  • Comment

The latest in a series of practice profiles looking at architects who have recently decided to go it alone either through choice or redundancy

Tom Ebdon Architects, Tottenham, London

Main people Tom Ebdon

Founded January 2013

Where have you come from? I worked at Simon Conder Associates for seven years, two years at Sarah Wigglesworth Architects and most recently with Carl Turner Architects.

What work do you have? I’m collaborating on a project in West Green Road, Tottenham with Make-Room to find ways of improving the street frontage and public realm. I’m also working on a few house extensions, doing simple but innovative transformations on tight London sites. I’ve had some success with competitions in the past, winning one for shelters at Bexhill and another for a sustainable camping shelter in the Mojave desert.

What are your ambitions? For more collaborative working, with a diverse range of organisations. I want to keep a healthy mix of projects in the office, working across a broad range of sectors. I also teach which has been really great for re-engaging with ideas and drawing. It would be great if the practice became associated with projects which were respected for being environmentally sustainable, socially engaging and rich in the context of their place.

How optimistic are you? The beauty of being a small practice is the flexibility it gives you; the ability to engage instantly with projects. The last five years have been tough, but there are some opportunities out there, and if there aren’t I intend to create them.
