We make ecology beautiful.
Unagru is a research-driven architectural and urbanism practice based in East London.
We aim to find beauty and innovative design solutions at the intersection of nature, society, and any given project. Our work is based on research and participation. Regardless of scale and type, we embrace every project as a learning opportunity to be shared with our clients and the wider community.
Ecology and sustainability are at the core of our mission and design processes. We have created a four-step implementation framework to help clients, consultants, and contractors make informed decisions to save money, time and carbon dioxide from inception to construction.
from the Italian, una gru one crane.
The sight of a crane, a bird of the family Gruidae, guarding a harsh industrial landscape struck our imagination as the embodiment of independence, grit, and resilience. On the other side, the crane, the machine used for hoisting heavy objects, is a fascinating combination of natural power and human technology that enables change. Unagru embodies and playfully embraces our hybrid technical and natural realm.
We are well-versed in private residential, sustainable water and landscape projects. Learning from our working experience and our clients' acknowledgement, it has come to our recent realisation and ambition that we want to share our knowledge and inspiration with a wider group of developers and local communities.

After the invasion of Ukraine and in light of the current climate crisis, we have started a campaign to reduce the use of natural gas in homes. We researched alternatives to gas boilers and hobs, and found solutions for every type of home and flat. You can visit the website here.
