Local Australian Architecture And Interior Design Amado House Created By Make Architecture 13


MAKE Architecture is a Melbourne based practice that has a collection of diverse and highly acclaimed built work. Their buildings are designed to respond to the seasons and careful thought is put into how spaces are occupied.

MAKE is best known for its stunning residential projects but this isn’t the sole focus of the studio. Recently the practice has begun work on a number of city making projects across a variety of scales and types including civic, educational and multi-residential projects.

MAKE looks opportunistically and thoughtfully at their projects with the ambition that they do more, and offer more, for the client, the neighbourhood and the broader site context. They see every project as an opportunity to contribute positively to the social and built fabric of its place. Believers in quality, not quantity, MAKE look for delight and efficiencies in the design of their buildings and focus on ways that these buildings can make all our lives better.

MAKE Architecture is a highly decorated practice, receiving critical recognition in a number of categories over the past six years. In 2015 their Local House Project was the winner of a national IDEA Award in the single residential category, whilst their Amado House took home the Intergrain Timber Vision Award for residential exterior in 2017.
