Make opens Sydney office

  • Comment

Ken Shuttleworth’s international practice Make has opened a new office in Sydney

The AJ100 Employer of the Year launched the studio after securing three major projects in the city - Wynyard Place development, The Sandstones Buildings in Bridge Street and a residential development in Macquarie Street in Australia.

The office is Make’s second overseas outpost having open a studio in Hong Kong.

Make founder Shuttleworth said: ’In the 12 years since founding Make, we have been privileged to work on some incredible projects around the world, such as Facebook’s UK HQ in London, HSBC’s private banking headquarters in Geneva and a flagship hotel for Swire Properties in Chengdu.

’We always look to challenge preconceptions, to deliver and exceed the client brief and to ensure that our project enhances its environment. We are looking forward to bringing the Make brand of architecture to Australia.’

In 2014, the London-based practice beat SOM, Grimshaw, Australian outfit Bates Smart and Germany’s Ingenhoven to win the City of Sydney-backed scheme at Wynyard Place

Supported by local firm Architectus, the nearly £600 million project for developer Brookfield will replace Sydney’s Menzies Hotel and Thakral House with a new 27-storey office skyscraper known as One Carrington Street.

The 58,000m² Sydney tower will include a new eastern concourse and entrance for Wynyard Station, a basement car park and 5,000m² of retail on four levels.

The scheme - set to be completed in 2018 - replaces a 29-storey mixed-use tower proposed by Hassell for the site’s previous owners in 2012.
