Sebastian Maher


Seb graduated from Victoria University of Wellington in 2015 with a Bachelor of Architectural Studies. He is particularly interested in the adaptive reuse of historical buildings and places and their role in enriching and informing the built environment.

In 2016, Seb joined Make Architects as they set up their antipodean studio in Sydney, Australia. There, he worked on the sensitive restoration and reuse of the Department of Education. Recently, he transferred to Make’s London studio where he continues to work on bringing heritage buildings into the 21st-century.

With experience in collaborative and community informed design, Seb aims to further develop and understand how people can influence the place they call home, and what can be done to encourage more community involvement in future placemaking.
