About

The Edible Bus Stop® (EBS) is a London based award winning collective, comprising of landscape architects, garden designers, horticulturists, artists and activists. 

The core of our ethos, is the belief that a brutal landscape makes for a brutal outlook, and that by taking responsibility for our urban environment, we can improve upon the experience of inner city living.

We are provocative and playful in our methodology, whilst still remaining pragmatic and principled in our approach to the design, the detailed engineering elements and the delivery of each project. 

We transform challenging spaces into design led active places in both permanent and temporary settings. Our projects are diverse and creative, whether that be a pocket park in a Victorian street in Stockwell, installations at the Southbank Centre or a concept design at the former Athletes Village ‘London 2012’. We explore designs that create landmarks, demonstrating that good design is not socially exclusive.

Our diverse projects make us an adaptable studio. We work across many disciplines to achieve the best result for our clients. We have created a niche in the market where we work with different partners at all levels of each project.

Meanwhile and temporary intervention has become an ever prevalent part of urban design and this is something the EBS specialise in. By animating temporary spaces, through inspired design, we can enable conversations about their future permanent uses. 

We are firm believers in the importance of the ‘third space‘ within communities. Free, accessible, inclusive neighbourhood places, for locals to congregate and mix, regardless of social standing. This in turn informs our proposals. We produce designs that are landmarks, utilising and responding to an areas specific environment, identity and heritage. We balance this with the budget and client / community needs. We also particularly enjoy re-imagining and re-working ordinary off the shelf products in inventive ways.
