We are Mæ • Architects • Urban designers • Researchers • Policy makers.
Our purpose is to design buildings and places that uplift the human spirit. Mæ is at the forefront of sustainable, resilient and socially conscious architecture and urbanism; creating work that exists in harmony with the planet and enriches culture and society.
Our work is guided by three principles:
- Social - we create inclusive, welcoming places together with the people who use our buildings,
- Sustainable - we respond positively to the climate emergency, designing resilient, low-carbon architecture,
- Spatial - we go beyond conventional thinking to make imaginative, affordable spaces that exceed people’s expectations.
These principles influence three business goals, which shape our governance and oversight of design, quality, health & safety and environmental responsibility. The goals are:
Mæ Zero: Our ambition is to create exemplary, pioneering circular and environmental buildings. Each new project aims to develop learning and build research and know-how in order to propel us forward in this goal.
Mæ+: We will continue to be the industry leader for low-cost / high-quality housing; developing the DNA genetic sequence for good housing, using research, POE data and automation we intelligently plan and test our buildings
Mæ B: We plan to grow as a business that profits with purpose and as a shared business; building social value & social capital for our clients and communities we serve, we are aiming to become a B-Corp balancing profit with people and the planet.
Specialists at the forefront of housing, health & care and social infrastructure we design at all scales. From the city to the living room, we apply integrated thinking to deliver resilient architecture for the long-term.
