Umbra House is an innovative new build three-bedroom house in Lambeth, South London for a complex infill site in-between two existing terraces that has been awarded planning. Umbra House explores the use of light and geometry in relationship to Town Planning and urban design as a generative design process for solutions to dense urban living. The umbra (Latin for “shadow”) is the innermost and darkest part of a shadow, where the light source is completely blocked by the occluding body.
