The MAD house is a multi-adult dwelling in Vancouver. Housing three sets of adults from the same family within a 2880 square foot volume, the home was designed to allow for wide open shared public spaces and private separated suites.
MAAStudio practices unabashed architecture that is concise and practical, yet poetic and personal to the client. Once described by a Client having the ability “...magically transform ordinary spaces and humble materials into places of poetic beauty”, we are driven to infuse meaning into the work as well as to delight and surprise.
It is the stretching of creative muscle that allows MAAStudio to focus on design solutions that explore alternative ways of home ownership and dwelling. Our residential sector centers on multi-family residential buildings, micro co-housing, and custom multi-family homes. This practice is based on the principle that living smarter is better than living bigger. We believe that through creative thinking, we can craft solutions that speak to today's issues of affordability and social and environmental sustainability and our drive to a sharing economy. We believe in the usefulness of creativity.
