THE  MADE IN PLACE WAY

Made In Place is a London-based, multi-award winning architectural and interior design company. Previously named the Wingate Design Partnership, we changed our name in 2013 to reflect the breadth of work undertaken as demonstrated in our extensive portfolio. We specialise in the design and development of retail outlets, restaurants and bars, office interiors and residential property worldwide and pride ourselves in creating unique spaces that inspire and appeal. We take shells of buildings and turn them into functional venues that not only maximise space and retain character, but convey the brand vision and personality of the clients we work for. We work closely with international brands such as Paperchase, The Conran Shop and Episode and have won various awards for our work including two ISG Retail Week Interiors Awards in 2013 for our work with Paperchase on their flagship store in Glasgow.

We are also proud members of the Chartered Society of Designers and the Passivhaus Trust. Working to tight deadlines and challenging client briefs, we understand the importance of budgeting and efficiency from concept to completion. Our architects and designers collaborate with carefully selected professional tradesman and highly-skilled shop fitters with which we’ve forged strong relationships spanning over 20 years. We ensure design and fit coordinate seamlessly during the shop fitting and development process, finishing on time and surpassing expectations. This knowledge and expertise is echoed in all sectors we operate in, ensuring excellent results and team collaboration every time. Boasting a global portfolio of reputable clients, Made In Place also designs Passivhaus residential projects, an exciting and cost effective approach to energy efficient home design and build.

THE MADE IN PLACE TEAM

Our talented team of professionally qualified experts have the ability, experience and passion to deliver on time, and within budget from concept design to completion on site including:

• Initial concept interior designs for retail, bars and restaurants
• Office and residential spaces
• Detailed architectural plans
• Costings for all aspects of design and build phases
 Our strong background in engineering means we don’t just deal with the design aesthetics of your project requirements, but can confidently take on larger structural projects that involve all aspects of the construction process.

We provide you with detailed drawings for even the most extravagant of ideas which are of a standard high enough to submit to planning authorities. Paperchase Glasgow and Tottenham Court Road where we designed and executed both stair cases and mezzanine floors, as well as the glass shop fronts.

Whether you have a blank canvas, or an existing idea to be built upon, we can design bespoke themes and interiors to suit your exact needs and creative vision.

WE ARE SPACE EXPLORERS

One of our key beliefs at Made In Place is that great architectural and interior design should stand the test of time. It should be available and accessible to everyone and not come at an unreasonable cost. All of our design work embraces this ethos, from large structural projects to furniture and lighting design.

We are passionate about creating new, innovative design work; as well as restoring character and quality in buildings to show their full potential. This is proven in our many recycle and upcycle projects that not only save money, but reduce waste to landfill.

Creating captivating spaces is our speciality. Our vast and varied array of clients reflects our breadth of abilities. From blue chip to potato chip, we work with companies of all different sizes from retail industry giants to small, quaint wine bars and restaurants, or unique residential spaces.

WE ARE UNIQUE

Our hands-on, artisan approach to retail design, office interior design and architectural design means that we work with our canvas rather than against it. We have experience in working sympathetically with unusual and listed buildings, highlighting and exposing original features of property to reinstate and emphasise beauty, quirks and character.

We create tactile, functional spaces that set our clients apart from their competitors. We do not force spaces or buildings into uncomfortable moulds in the name of fashion, we empower, enhance and accentuate spaces to reach their full potential.

WE CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MAN

Unlike many of our designer peers, our long standing relationships with expert tradesmen and professional contractors remove the need for a main contractor. Using a network of reliable and experienced manufacturers, suppliers, shop fitters and trades people with relationships that go back more than 20 years, we offer unrivalled transparency across all aspects of our projects, maintaining control and consistency in every project we undertake. Most importantly, this enables us to reduce costs and build times considerably, without jeopardising the quality of work.

WE EMBRACE THE PASSIVHAUS MOVEMENT

We’re a member of the Passivhaus Trust – a non-profit organisation which leads the way in providing a design standard that reduces the amount of energy required to heat a building. The result not only lowers energy bills and CO2 emissions considerably, but also offers a superior standard of living and comfort that is environmentally friendly.
