About MADLAB

MADLAB is an award-winning and internationally published architecture firm
noted for its research and innovative design services

How we work

Fostering powerful design through active listening
and creative problem-solving

Built into every project is our unique multidisciplinary approach that draws from our wealth of experience. Whether working on an existing structure or developing concepts for a new one, we don’t stop at just reaching your goals, but exceeding them.

The biggest obstacle to great design is assuming we already know the answer. Our research approach begins by undoing all our assumptions and discovering unexpected outcomes.

We’re not just a name, we’re a lab. Really. Our studio is nestled inside of a 1,800 sq ft shop for making and prototyping ideas. And on occasion, for hosting some really great events.

Our work is only as good as the company it shares. Especially when the chitchat can stretch beyond our usual category called “Design.” That’s why we decided to become NJ’s only Pecha Kucha host organization. Check for upcoming events here

BEHIND EVERY GREAT SKILL IS A GREAT PROBLEM

Our Services

Architecture

We bring an inclusive approach to architectural explorations, balancing conceptual clarity with technical innovation. We unpack client values, complex sites and phasing needs as straightforward design opportunities.

Interiors

We compose environments that inspire curiosity and interactivity, long after that first impression. We design experiences, able to be described by how they make us feel, and not just what objects they hold.

We’re captivated by the magic and mystery of light – how it can shift our behaviors without even realizing it. We consider these nuances with every creation, whether for an intimate setting or a large event space.

We collaborate with clients to build an immersive identity with cultural relevance. We transcend logos and missions into experiences that users can hold in common with others while discovering their own interaction with a brand.
