Our is intensely generative, developing low-budget socially-focused projects from scratch, largely for working class communities within the UK. We work with communities + individuals with an ambition to improve their experience of life through an active intervention in their spiritual, social, economic, physical and cultural context. We create capacity, knowledge, power and sustainability for a community whilst ensuring that outputs are appropriate, tangible, valued and have longevity.

Make/Space


Making space for the conception and development of future possibilities within common society

Make/Space


Making space for the conception and development of future possibilities within common society
A new mode of essential public infrastructure dedicated to the conception and organic development of future possibilities

Make/Space is a new form of exploratory, active + facilitated public space dedicated to the conception + prototyping of social, cultural, economic and environmental activity. Physical + performative prototypes are tested though citizen-led building + creative practice to identify + generate need for permanent infrastructure within a community. This approach builds capacity, enabling communities to be the power that delivers change. Whilst guerrilla architecture is often used as a means of activating public space + triggering urban renewal, engagements of this kind are often short-lived + increasingly derive from institutional ideas of what makes good urban renewal. The mainstreaming of participatory design practice has diverted it from its core purpose: the redistribution of power through the production of sustainable environments. Our approach enables a more thoughtful exploration of social needs and identity + also works as an entirely new approach to the generation of urban spaces.
