Who we are
Make is a different kind of architecture practice. Founded in 2004 by Ken Shuttleworth, we’re motivated by a single purpose: to design the best places, spaces and buildings in the world. We’re a team of 150 in London, Hong Kong and Sydney providing architecture, interior and urban design services from concept to completion.
Creativity without limits
We’re proudly free from a house style. At Make, ideas evolve, and we explore the full and unique potential of every client’s brief, site and budget to ensure the best idea surfaces.
Partners in design
As a 100% employee-owned practice, partnership runs through everything we do. Ours is a workplace of collaboration and respect where everyone is engaged, from recent graduates to project leaders. Clients are co-creators, partners in the process. This spirit of inclusivity on projects extends to communities and key stakeholders. And whether in London, Hong Kong or Sydney, we work as One Make – a single studio in three locations.
Since 2004, we’ve completed over 100 built schemes around the world. Whether it’s workplaces of the future, transformational urban design, luxury interiors or boundary-pushing virtual spaces, we have a wealth of cross-sector, global expertise to draw on.
We’re always looking for new possibilities and horizons. To find them we embrace promising new technologies, materials and methods, cross-sector expertise, and ambitious thought leadership. We ask questions at every level – from details to big picture – to pursue the best.
The best design improves people’s lives and looks after the world. As architects we have an urgent duty to leave a resilient legacy. Make’s approach to sustainable design considers environmental, social and economic factors, including targeting 2030 net zero carbon. We aim to create a future that delivers social value for all.
