Ecologic is a collaborative and creative design practice set up in 1993. It specialises in sustainable, participatory and community projects.
The practice is led by Sumita Singha. By following agile, collaborative and innovative ways of working, the practice has been able to work on small and large projects in the UK and elsewhere- and produced a diverse range of works.
Environment, Ethics and Equity sit at the heart of all that we do.
Our Featured Work
Urban regeneration and community projects
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. It is currently working on an urban regeneration project in the USA.
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.
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, Element of Style, 2005 and shortlisted for the Galvaniser's award.
Eco-pods for Greenway, Newham, London
A project for Greenway, East London, to provide self contained 'eco-pods' that could serve as rest areas or kiosks or toilets in association with Price & Myers.
Inspired by the forms of water and the 2CV, these will be self sufficient moveable pods that can be used anywhere.
Practice based research has resulted in four influential books and research papers on the subjects of sustainable design, community engagement, healthcare and women in architecture.
