Custom Build Homes strengthens through Urban Design

Custom Build Homes (CBH) is delighted to welcome its newest addition to the team, Ellie Burroughs, an experienced and talented architectural designer with expertise in architecture, urban design and planning.

CBH has taken the decision to bring urban design in-house as it seeks to gain further influence over creating places beyond individual homes. Ellie Burroughs represents the beginning of an exciting new team that will be tasked designing beautiful and sustainable new communities that will host custom build homes and their residents.   

Ellie joins CBH from award-winning practice, Aitken Turnbull Architects, Edinburgh. Ellie has a Master of Architecture (RIBA Part 2), with distinction focusing on flood-resilient housing. 

CBH was impressed with Ellie’s strong interest in community rich housing and place-making. To support her interest, she will continue in her role as director of Imagine If. Space CIC. This Edinburgh based collective focuses on education and research around co-housing and shared resources in housing. More recently, Imagine If. Space CIC won an RSA Medal for Architecture in the Open Exhibitions of Art and Architecture 2021. 

Tom Connor, Founder of Custom Build Homes, said:

“I am really looking forward to working closely with Ellie to develop our design ethos and style. Her obvious passion for community rich housing is infectious and I am sure CBH will provide her with an excellent environment in which to implement her ideas across larger schemes.”
