Melissa Bright Logo

Mel Bright is the owner and founding director of Studio Bright (previously known as Make Architecture), a Melbourne-based practice that has already gathered a collection of diverse and highly acclaimed built work. Studio Bright is best known for its houses, but the practice is currently working on a number of city making projects across a variety of scales and types including civic, educational and multiresidential projects.

Mel has led the Studio Bright team since starting the practice in 2006. Prior to this, Mel has worked in numerous design practices locally and internationally. Across London, Europe, South East Asia and China, this broadly based lineage of work experience has allowed Mel a long gestation of the ethos that underpins Studio Bright today. Through Studio Bright, Mel has amassed a portfolio of significant and award-winning projects, that have been widely published and recognized at state and national levels. As a member of the Australian Institute of Architects Mel actively contributes her time as a speaker, juror and in other leadership roles.
