How it All Started
Home & Maker is the brainchild of design entrepreneur Isabella Open, who believes that everybody deserves a well designed home, and industry insider Nathan McNamara who uses his professional know-how to connect homeowners with talented designers for an affordable price. Together, they formed Home & Maker - an online architecture service that designs dream homes at unbeatable value.
Where we are
Our team works across the UK, over seven regional offices.
Founded on the idea that everyone deserves a well-designed home.
Home & Maker is the result of many years of home design and construction experience. We are online architects focused on designing great homes at an affordable price. Let us make your extension ideas or dreams of a brand new home a reality!
Built on these strong foundations, at Home & Maker we recognise the need for reliable home design services, budgeting and advice no matter how big or small your project is. Whether you are remodelling, extending or building from the ground up – we’ve seen it all! Working across seven offices means that we are likely to be located near you, so schedule a call or instant message us to get started.
What Matters to Us
We take time to make sure our home designs are always characterful, research based, widely desirable and ethically sound.
It’s important that our designs link to your neighbourhoods, communities, and all and any future residents of that home.
Where possible we stick to the best indoor space standards; considering the shape and proportion of your home and creating simple layouts that are practical and flexible for you, your family and for when you have guests over.
Longevity & sustainability
Investing our time and your money into the homes of the UK, asks us as architects and designers to consider the lifetime of our designs, ensuring that they are built to last, are energy efficient and ethically responsible.
Wellbeing for happy healthy homes
To make the most of simple domestic activities such as bathing or laundry we prioritise clean, bright and airy spaces.
We prioritise easy maintenance and reasonable utility bills in our designs to make your home economical. We also want to make sure that our designs only ever add value.
Locally valued and good looking
Home & Maker architectural designs & services always strive to create characterful homes, through being individual, local or traditional.
