#makingworklive

Employing a unique, inclusive methodology allows us to create exciting environments that are #makingworklive for our clients.

Taking inspiration from leaders in education and technology, 3equals1 creates durable spaces that primarily work for their clients' needs but also sit ahead of the curve.

Our human-centered, organic approach to workplace design guarantees that clients get properly involved in the process.

We are inspired by the way people utilise their spaces and strive to create the best environments possible by researching in depth the psychological and physical aspects.

By analysing data, we can incorporate workplace strategy into our approach. Whether it's through Interviewing staff, performing storage audits, or simply talking to people anecdotally, we obtain a deep understanding of how people and departments within an organisation interact and work together.

Observation is key in ensuring the design of an office enhances the working environment and the experience of those within it.

Meet the team

Maz Mahmoudi

Hi I’m Maz!

Some may say that I am a destroyer, but really I’m a fun lovin criminal! I work hard and play harder.

Being an Iranian South Londoner doesn’t mean I tan very well but my big hair keeps me warm on the cold winter days.

I started 3equals1 Design in 2010 and am loving doing the weird and wonderful creative things that get thrown at us.

Gert Van Dam

Since November 2017 I live in crazy London and so far the parks, pubs, museums, the great London atmosphere and obviously my work make me feel home in this part of the world! In 2015, I graduated as an interior designer at ArtEZ institute of architecture, in the Netherlands.


As you can probably see from my name I’m born and raised in the country of tulips and windmills, not too far from Amsterdam.

Harry Clayton

Hi I’m Harry!

I studied Interior Design at university and graduated in 2016. I love design for the real impact you can have on people’s lives. It gives great satisfaction to feel like you have helped make a difference for the better.

I was born in London and have always lived here and spend my spare time at Chelsea watching the football surrounded by family and friends.

Rhiannon Fackrell

I moved to London from South Wales after completing my degree in Interior Architecture and Design at Nottingham Trent University. I have always loved architecture in design, my personal favourite is the Minimalist movement. I enjoy being able to transform a space so that it works for the people that it is intended for, and for its intended purpose, and I am excited to explore this more at 3Equals1.

In my spare time, I love going to gigs, festivals and exploring London more than I have been able to in the past when I would come to visit for a few days. I love the diversity of London and that there is always somewhere new discover and get some inspiration from.

Sahara Williams

I love live music and am always looking for the next at concerts and festivals. Being born and raised in East London I have explored loads of music venues over London.

Aside from music, enjoy travelling and going to exhibitions.  
I'm really into Astrology! and love the idea of creating a space for someone or a group of people based on their birth charts.

I would say my design style is simple and clean, but I’m all about the finer details such as fixtures, complimenting finishes and lighting. Same with Fashion.
My favourite part of the process is being involved from the initial concept of a design and creating mood boards. I'm the type of person to create a mood board for their life.

Sabrina Brouwers

Having lived in six countries I’m a nomad at heart. I love traveling and exploring new cultures. I moved to London two years ago to study a postgraduate degree in Graphic Design.

I am always amazed at the effect that a designed space can have on a person, especially when it comes to dramatic lighting. I am excited to bring some more graphic elements to interior spaces here at 3 equals 1.

When I’m not designing, you will probably find me in an exhibition or drawing some op art or painting some stripes or taking photos of clouds… any creative outlet and I’ll be there.

Being able to choose from a diverse range of styles within the team is a huge advantage to potential clients

We are a team of creative individuals who each have their own style but importantly we work well together. Fostering an environment in which the individual styles and personalities of our team are allowed to prosper benefits the overall output of the team and helps us maximise the synergies that we possess.

Indeed, by allowing our own individual styles to flourish in a co-operative team environment, we can cater for a broad spectrum of clients with varying tastes. Evaluating who is best suited for each client means the success of the project is given a higher priority than the ego.
