"One word: AMAZING. MadLab is a group of consummate professionals dedicated to the art of their trade. They are creative, passionate, and detail-oriented. I wish they were local, but they worked well with me from afar and came to town for the installation. I am complimented by literally every visitor entering my residence based on the work they did in designing and constructing an exceptional chandelier unlike any other."

"MADLAB was responsible for the strategy, design, project management and coordination of our new home. They were able to translate our vision into a living space that not only aligned with our goals but exceeded our expectation. Their professionalism, creativity, knowledge, commitment and hard work is evident in every aspect of the design, material selection and the experience of living in our space."

"Madlab is one of the most unique and creative architectural companies I worked with. They specialize in modern architecture and space planning. Their modern style makes each project unique. Petia and her crew take each project very seriously, paying extremely close attention to every detail. They are very detailed oriented and always look for the best solution fitting their clients’ needs. It was real pleasure working with them."

"MADLAB designed a small entryway addition to our home. We were in need of a main floor powder room and entry closet. MADLAB's design was in perfect sync with the traditional exterior of the home, but incorporated our desire for a modern, contemporary take on the interior features. The use of recycled glass tiles, and the custom made pocket doors were the key features of this addition. We loved it!

"I highly recommend Petia and team at MADLAB! They guided us from start to finish on converting a post and beam house to a contemporary home. They are acutely aware of the nuances of flow and form with regards to living and lifestyle. We vetted numerous firms in order to achieve what we wanted for our home. MADLAB stood out among the rest. They counseled us even with minutia concerning the exotic wood stains and heat efficiency testing. The 3d renderings they provided floored us as well. They are experienced and up to date on technique and I recommend them highly."

"MADLAB quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively designed our country home to conserve energy, use the available footprint in the most effective manner, but more importantly, have given us a house that makes a clear and cutting edge design statement. We unreservedly recommend them."

"We first hired MADLAB to renovate the kitchen in our old dutch colonial. We asked the architects to bring us up into a cleaner more modern look while respecting the character of the house and working with existing cabinetry and a small footprint. What we ended up with by far and away exceeded our expectations. We accomplished everything we wanted within the space and more, while at the same time making the space feel larger and airier than ever before. So, when we moved into a smaller house that needed a large amount of updating, we knew exactly who call. Petia and her team have an incredible ability to "read" a home and absolutely maximize on the space and structure of a home... always ending up with a reinterpreted space that feels like it should have always been the original. Our aesthetic sense is fairly modern which melds well with the MADLAB sensibility but the team always imbues the space with a practical, warm feel that makes the space truly comfortable. If we were ever to renovate another space, there is no question that we would go directly to MADLAB.

"In a town where it can be difficult to find architects and contractors with a modern aesthetic, we were happy to find Madlab LLC after noticing their sign in front of a stunning contemporary remodel. Petia Morozov became involved early in the process - before we even found a house to buy. She even came with us to see several options we were considering so she could advise us as to how easy/difficult it might be to get the look we wanted in some more traditional homes. When we finally found the right house to buy (a mid-century ranch), she weighed in immediately (yes! buy it!) and then worked with us on several design options. Petia was able to re-envision the space with an eye for details we would not have considered. She worked closely with us on contractor selection and project oversight and also went beyond the scope of her work to offer design advice and feedback. She worked well with our contractor and saw the project through to the end. Now we have a beautiful, modern home that's perfectly suited to the way we live, and that we can enjoy for many years to come!
