Vision & Values
Architects, urban designers and researchers. Led by Alex Ely, former Head of Sustainable Communities at CABE, Mæ design buildings that seek to address today’s urban, social and environmental challenges. Our aim is always to create buildings and places that enrich culture and society.
We thrive on collaboration. Working on regeneration projects for public and private sector clients, we talk – and listen – to colleagues and communities. Our design solutions match the client’s brief with the varied day-to-day needs of the building’s users.
Focusing on brownfield sites, we promote green policies. We’ve designed the UK’s largest newbuild Passivhaus scheme and each new project reinforces our environmental credentials. At Mæ, we blend creativity, humanity and sustainability.
We see the big picture. To us, placemaking is a vital part of the process. Working in the housing, workplace, health & care, civic and cultural buildings sectors, we design at all scales. From the city to the living room, we apply integrated thinking.
