MAD-T – The Practice
The practice focus is predominantly on the bespoke residential market ranging from compact houses where space is limited and emphasis is on realising the maximum use of limited area available, to exceptionally large houses where scale, proportion and function work in total harmony. No matter the size, style or requirement, custom specific, is our game.
We have worked with and completed many houses within housing estates and familiar with the various guidelines and processes.
If your preference is for an existing house makeover, we have completed many successful house transformations whether it is on a small scale or on a scale of grandeur.
We have successfully completed many housing developments comprising individual cluster type houses to sectional title units for the mass market.
Our residential design philosophy is:
- To produce architectural excellence in planning, functionality, form, style and context.
- To not subscribe to any specific ‘style’ of architecture but rather be responsive to our client specific requirements as well as their site specific conditions. In the event that a client requires guidance in identifying what their requirements are, we, through an interactive process of consultations and design, are able to identify these requirements.
- To completely fulfil and go beyond our clients expectations.
The practice has completed many office block developments from individual blocks, designed for a single owner or user specific requirements to multi tenanted blocks and office parks.
The commercial sector is competitive and our design emphasis is to maximise rentable area while ensuring a product which has demand, based on design aesthetic, functionality and commercial exposure for any prospective tenant or owner occupier.
Architecture is all about perception and is completely subjective. Our objective however is to realise our clients dreams by changing the state of raw building materials and converting them into asset based, three dimensional, functional, habitable, sculptural forms which stimulate emotions of passion, well being and sense of belonging in a resultant product which is truly perceived as ‘Architecture’.
In a world where there is an ever increasing need to conserve energies, rationalise operational costs and reduce the carbon footprint on the environment, this practice fully subscribes to the ‘Green Building’ principals which are implemented from design concept through to the fully functioning end product.
