Malem Creative is founded and run by Tom Malem, who collaborates with a range of creative partners and design consultancies.

The Auckland based studio is design-led and takes a considered and practical approach to our work, specialising in concept creation, interior architecture and design for retail and hospitality projects.

We design environments that bring people together, which in turn create moments in life that everyone enjoys being a part of.

We love to imagine what something could be; a store, cafe, bar, restaurant, or a combination of these to become a retail destination with broad appeal.

We consider what customers do and do not want, using a combination of logic and imagination. Customers want things to work smoothly and feel great. To achieve this takes thought, craft and development.

The world is changing at an incredible speed, brought about by rapid innovation that is transforming the way we live, educate, communicate and socialise.

Remembering that the human experience is at the heart of what we create is key to our vision. Defining how we use space and what we want from it.

The projects shown here represent a collaborative team effort to produce work that we are proud to be a part of.
