This is Mad

With a deliberate focus through a variety of projects, Mad has obtained a unique insight in how buildings can release their full potential in close relation with their surroundings.

As you and I, buildings are social beings. And just like us, architecture cannot live and prosper unless it relates to its environment. We strive towards our ideal of creating architecture that adapts while maintaining personality and character; which is blending in by standing out!

By recognizing the most important factors of each site’s urban fabric and social implications, Mad has cultivated the art of conveying this abstract essence into a formal response; maintaining the building and its relationship to its context – be it a small infill-project in a crowded street or large buildings as part of an extensive transformation.

Because no matter which size, scale or situation, the bottom line is always the same: A building’s main purpose is to be useful to humans. And we believe the key to achieving this is urban understanding.

“when a multitude of different talents harmonize and unite in a common vision.”

Mad’s advantage lies in the unquestionable benefits we get when a multitude of different talents harmonize and unite in a common vision.

Our aim is to create unique projects that evolve from the dynamic and creative group which is Mad: Our practice is the sum of the contributions from each employee, and the key is to encourage each architect to release their full potential as professional and creative individuals – and expect everyone to take on the responsibility that follows.

We are proud to have created a demanding and socially rich environment that is constantly reflected in the enduring quality of our projects. Mad works with a full range of architectural scales and fields, spanning from interior design to urban development, from feasibility studies to detailing and realization. Our portfolio includes residential, cultural and office buildings, as well as urban planning while we remain curious and eager to expand in new directions. Despite being a relatively young office, Mad has has proved to be a thorough and punctual firm that can be trusted to deliver what is requested. We always seek to challenge the tasks we are engaged in – in order to use our expertise to suggest improvements and ensure that our clients maximize the esthetical and commercial values in their projects.
