Mel Bright is the owner and founding director of MAKE architecture, an emerging practice that has already gathered a collection of built work that displays a striking conversation with Melbourne architectural heritage.

With their work predominantly in residential builds, alterations and extensions, the careful and strategic understanding of occupational use is complimented by an intrinsic interest in material specificity. 

MAKE look opportunistically and thoughtfully at their projects with the ambition that they do more, offer more; for the client, the neighbourhood and the broader site context. 

They see every project as an opportunity to contribute positively to the fabric of its place. Believers in quality not quantity, MAKE look for delight and efficiencies in the design of our buildings and focus on ways that these buildings can make our lives better.

Introduced by Professor SueAnne Ware, Head of School for Architecture and Built Environment at UON.


The School of Architecture & Built Environment Lecture Series showcases a wide range of projects, global trends and practice styles from local, national and international industry experts within the Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Industrial Design and Construction Management professions.

The fortnightly lecture series provides valuable exposure and insight to the professions as well as networking opportunities for students, industry and the local community.
