Practice launches downunder after string of project wins

Ken Shuttleworth’s Make practice has launched a new office in Sydney after winning contracts for three major projects in Australia.

The firm’s contracts in the city include the Wynyard Place mixed-use scheme for Brookfield as well as a residential scheme at Macquarie Street in Sydney’s financial district.

The Wynyard Place scheme will see Make transform the current transport hub into a mixed-use scheme with 74,000 sq m of offices, leisure and retail along with a hotel.

Make partner in the Sydney office Ian Lomas said: “”We have had an incredible reception in Sydney so far and feel very humbled. There is a wealth of opportunity in Australia and we feel that we are arriving in the marketplace at a really exciting time. Make continues to deepen its commitment to Australia, having relocated five staff so far from our London headquarters, each with great placemaking experience.

“We believe our skills, track record and learnings will translate really well here in Sydney and add value to a city which has enormous constraints on its land supply but also an enormous need to serve a growing population,”
