Mackay + Partners has always worked with other architects and designers. We believe this enriches our work and exposes us to other ways of working that can benefit us and our clients.
We have strengthened our working links by collaborating with international design partners:

Various projects have enabled other collaborations. We worked with Renzo Piano, Paris on Central St Giles, the high-end 60-room residential development near London’s Centre Point, completed in 2011.
For Merck Serono’s Geneva headquarters we worked with architect Helmut Jahn. Our role was to ensure the interiors were seamlessly integrated into the building and bring human scale to the environment.
We worked with hotelier Ian Schrager and international designer Phillip Starck as executive architect for London’s St Martin Lane Hotel , for which we provided full design and on site services, and the Sanderson Hotel, which we took to planning permission stage.
