But we don’t only design; we can do all the other stuff too from pre-purchase advice on a property to project management. We are frequently to be seen on the way to site visits with our noses stuck in cost plans and contracts.
We view our approach as artisanal, from the initial design to controlling the budget and build throughout all stages – including off site manufacture.
This ensures that, without fail, our delivery of projects is on time and within budget.
Made In Place has worked on all sorts of schemes, from one off independent shops to rolling out a chain. For many clients, we also design bespoke fittings, furniture and even carpets and wallpapers. We can create fabulous low energy lighting systems through to unique door handles.
We believe in the longevity of good and effective design and the value that it brings to our clients. American Retro in Old Compton Street, London – now in its 11th year – is testament to this.
We initially worked on the redesign of the Paperchase flagship store in Tottenham Court Road, London well over a decade ago, but in 2011 we returned to create a new department, the Mezzanine, selling high end design items.
With Ken Wingate’s origins in engineering we are also comfortable in taking on larger structural projects, an example being the floating staircase that we installed when doing the Paperchase headquarters in Tottenham Court Road in 2010.
The company changed its name to Made In Place in 2013 to reflect the breadth of work that we do. Ken Wingate worked at Din Associates prior to setting up a practice, Wingate and Moon, in the early 1990s, which subsequently became Wingate Design Partnership and now, Made In Place.
