Ecospace building project expands
A project to provide minimal carbon footprint studios and offices by IPT Architects, set up 10 years ago, has now been extended to include homes and schools.
Designers Amira Idris-Town, Lee Town and Matthew Kettle of the London-based firm set up a side project designing prefabricated buildings.
The team wanted to create sustainable garden buildings that could be configured to fit individual requirements. Known as “Ecospaces”, the structures were built off-site, and delivered and installed quickly and at a relatively low cost.
Now Ecospace’s founders have extended the scope of their practice and the design team has collaborated on a photoshoot by fashion photographer Ben Benoliel to showcase the project.
The structures take five days to put up and cost $12,500.
