MAKE Architecture Studio is a gem of a find. These folks are really serious about a sustainable ethos.
“Interesting, compact architecture, this project is a rare recognition of the fact ‘smaller is better,” the judges said.
“The effort put into reusing demolitions materials is no token gesture and the occupants are given the ability to be responsive to climate and day and night conditions.”
Owner and Director of MAKE architecture, Melissa Bright accepted the Award on behalf of the firm.
“It is such a privilege for our small practice MAKE, to be recognised in this way. We’ve only been going for six years which feels like a long time but we’re really only just starting out still and to be recognised at these awards is a thrill.
She said that the approach of MAKE has been to minimise consumption and creating smaller environments.
“In terms of sustainability we’re really trying to think about sustainability in a different way. A lot of our clients can’t afford add on products and their budgets are small so we try to think in terms making things smaller.”
The judges were impressed with the innovative way that space is utilised and made flexible.
