MAKE is a Melbourne based architectural practice with a strong focus on quality and a passion for good design. Our buildings are designed to respond to the seasons and careful thought is put into how spaces are occupied. Believers in quality not quantity, MAKE look for efficiencies and delight in the design of our buildings and focus on ways that these buildings can make our lives better. At MAKE, we see each project as collaboration between us, our clients and builder and all the aspects of the building process are carefully considered. Through this collaborative approach we don’t overlay a prescribed style, instead preferring to let the client brief and context drive the outcomes. A sustainable ethos, responsible social agenda and a site responsive design process are part of every project and even the smallest project presents an opportunity to contribute positively to the fabric of its place. All MAKE staff are involved in architectural education through teaching and this commitment to the education of young architects is an important aspect of the studio. This combination of teaching and practice ensures a fresh and creative approach to design. MAKE projects are published widely and have received numerous awards.
