The people we work with at Aukett Swanke, and those we design for as clients or inhabitants, are fundamental to our core philosophy that focuses on People and the Planet

We are made up of a talented collective team whose lives, families and passions are immensely important to us. We value and nurture their wellbeing, skills and passions to create the best designs for all our projects.

As a knowledge intensive design studio, our people benefit from a natural and generous flow of ideas, evaluations and information, enabled through the open studio, more recently via digital media and frequently through spontaneous and serendipitous chatting both in person and virtually.

We provide wellbeing support and encouragement through our directors, in particular Suzette Vela Burkett, Managing Director – UK, and also via our HR team led by Yvonne Mathurin. This is in the form of healthcare for all and socials for fun amongst many personally attentive channels for dialogue and understanding.
