Make Good Studio
Represented by Kathrin Wheib, Director
How does your organisation address climate change?
Make Good Studio is a sustainable interior design studio based in Melbourne, undertaking both commercial and residential projects and renovations. We design with the principle of less is better. Our work seeks to inspire a better way of living through respect for the planet’s resources and through intelligent design. We make spaces that are beautiful and modern which elevate the aesthetics of sustainable projects. Make Good Studio offers a future forward take on interiors where waste is minimised and materials and resources are respected.
What is your organisation doing to create a better future?
I set up Make Good Studio because I wanted to make a positive contribution to combating climate change and given the construction industry contributes ~40% greenhouse gases there is a lot of scope for improvement.
I passionately believe there is a smarter way to design interiors. The amount of waste generated and the mindless consumption of resources and energy that are currently used is what we are seeking to change. We offer a unique service to clients wishing to create beautiful spaces that marry aesthetics, function and sustainability.
We delve deeper than simply specifying eco products and incorporate circular thinking and zero waste philosophies into our work. We consider a material’s embodied carbon footprint, a space’s ability to be flexible and future proof as well as lifecycle thinking / design for deconstruction. We are passionate about adaptive reuse projects and renovations as a way to extend the life of the embodied carbon within the existing building fabric. We retrofit spaces to become more energy efficient.
