Make is a new creative workspace designed to fit the community that surrounds it. Because location is more than an address, it’s a lifestyle.Make is a place where businesses can come to fully immerse themselves in the culture around them. Located in Carlsbad, CA, the 175,000 sq. ft. workspace was converted from a floral trade warehouse.

Make exists to celebrate the flavor of a community and reflect it with the same style that attracted businesses to this area in the first place. Rapt Studio built the experience from the ground up including strategy, naming, identity and architecture. Rapt wanted to establish a place where creative companies could thrive.

With a close attention to detail and design of the surrounding environment, companies will find it easy to slip right in, making only minor adjustments to fit their brand.
