Our Office Does: Make Architects

As part of our dedication to championing an ethical approach to work, we’re shining a light on the workplaces making work-life more enriching for their employees.

This week, we spoke with Hamish Jackson: an architect from Make Architects, about office life at Make, and the small things that create an inspiring company culture.

“In all offices, there’s got to be a hierarchy, right? There are going to be people who have been there for years, decades, but what can go wrong with that is that those people think that they’ve got a right to make all the decisions. But at Make, there’s such a culture of curiosity, and even the most experienced people allow the more junior team members to have their say, and if they’ve got a better idea, that’s the idea that moves forward. And just generally, knowledge is happily passed down. In some offices, there’s a culture of knowledge hoarding, but at Make it’s just so established and assumed for everyone in the team to share what they know and push each other forward – everyone wants the people below them to learn as much as they can. And that’s so ingrained across the board that all achievements are team achievements: you don’t say “I did this “ you say “Make did this”, and I think that really inspires us to yes, produce the best work we can, but also create a team environment in which that “we” feels authentic.”
