Research interests and expertise

Tom Ebdon Architects is an architects practice established around the model of a close inter-working relationship between practice and academia. Architectural education can all too often become isolated from the work of an Architect in practice. We seek to engage and involve at all stages of the design process and crucially carry this process through into the making and realisation of a project.
