1123 Design was born out of an obsession with the relationship between numbers, design and people to create experiences that make us think and see our environment differently. Ever since he was a kid, Mel was fascinated with natural geometry and the proportions it creates in design to reflect the changes we experience everyday.

The values that represent 1123 are human at its core. We focus on elevating our design thinking by partnering with passionate people we trust to help innovate and welcome change. We are constantly challenging the norm to create purposeful spaces that deliver human experiences that are authentic and real for the digital age to help transform homes for the future.

We have an agile core design team that partner with the likeminded people to deliver on both large and small jobs alike.

Mel started his design career in London designing houses all over the UK. He has a passion for design that is infectious he has delivered exceptional design that clients have come to recognise. He has simplified a complicated process into three easy design stages that help his clients enjoy the experience in partnering with 1123 design to realising the dream home.

With a lifelong love of numbers and question everything through thinking differently, 1123 has developed tools to help create unique, simple and innovate environments that people have come to love.

1123 Design focuses on partnering with clients to bring their vision to life and exceeding their expectations at every turn. Mel tends to form close partnerships with his clients that often last well past the build phase. Don't hesitate to reach out so we can discuss your dream project.
