Ecologic has worked as a community engagement and sustainability consultant with other practices in cities in the UK such as Birmingham, Coventry and London. It has worked with local governments, community organisations and social enterprises on many community projects.
With its charity partner, Charushila, it has carried out work in India, UK, Palestinian territories and Venezuela in numerous projects with children and marginalised people involving food security and sustainable development. The current project is a community kitchen garden on a station platform in London.
Charushila is a member of the UN Global Compact, following its principles for sustainable and ethical work
Community Centre, Acton
The refurbishment of a Grade II listed community centre by reusing materials, using sustainable and ethically sourced materials and energy saving measures. Solapipes were used enhance daylighting and reduce the need for artificial lighting. Local community members and artists collaborated on the refurbishment.
Residential refurbishment and extension, West London
This project was a complete refurbishment of a house in a conservation area and a roof extension. The idea was to create a whole house system of passive ventilation and heating. Materials were carefully chosen- they were either reclaimed, recycled or recyclable. New materials and components used were carefully considered- the new doors were 'Angel Mark' (German certification for sustainably sourced product). The newly created roof garden uses rain water collected from underneath the decking. This project was featured in 'Green building Exhibition' at the Bristol architecture centre, AJ small projects and in the book, Style guide, 2005 and shortlisted for an award.
Residential project, West London
The residential refurbishment for a musician took into account his own personal tastes as well as introducing sustainable design and ethically sourced materials for the work. It involved many types of trades and specialists to create a space that would work for the client working from home and his family. The original space was quite dark and natural light was brought in to create a sense of spaciousness and well being. In spaces where natural light was not possible, mood lighting created a special feel. An outdoor private garden was created, using levels, seating and planters.
