At Alexis Dornier Makings, our team, known as ‘the Makers,’ forms the core of our creative vision. This talented group of architects, designers, and innovative thinkers brings a unique mix of skills, imagination, and passion. Drawing from a global pool of experience and cultural backgrounds, the Makers weave together diverse ideas to innovate and deliver on complex architectural projects. Committed to excellence and innovation, they don’t just work here—they are change-makers, constantly challenging the limits of what can be achieved in architecture.


At Alexis Dornier Makings, ‘makings’ isn’t just about constructing buildings; it’s about creating a complete environment where every detail is carefully planned and integrated. This approach embodies the philosophy of Gesamtkunstwerk, where architecture isn’t limited to walls but extends to an interconnected experience encompassing interior design, furniture, and art—each element contributing to a cohesive whole.

In an age where technology and mass production can sometimes overshadow the human element, the emphasis on ‘makings’ brings the focus back to the value of the handcrafted. At Alexis Dornier Makings, projects aren’t just built—they’re crafted with meticulous attention to detail that make spaces functional and deeply meaningful. This way, each project stands as a Gesamtkunstwerk, a complete work of art that highlights human creativity and craftsmanship.


Born in 1981 in Germany, Alexis Dornier comes from a family of artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs. He pursued his passion for architecture at the Berlin University of the Arts. He moved to New York City in 2004 and gained experience through internships at firms like Asymptote Architecture, OMA-NY, and Rex until 2007.

In 2013, Alexis left Berlin for Bali, marking a period of creativity and innovation. Initially consulting on local projects, he began leading his architectural designs. This move helped him expand his influence across the Indonesian Archipelago and beyond.

In 2024, Alexis will rebrand his practice as “Alexis Dornier Makings,” emphasising a collective creative spirit within the team and expanding into product design, industrial design, and art. This new chapter reflects his dedication to craftsmanship and his continued architectural evolution.
