MAD architects is a RIBA Chartered architectural practice based in Chesterfield, creating design led, sustainable buildings in Sheffield, Chesterfield and throughout Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and the Peak District.

We are small practice with a proven flair for designing creative solutions that are backed up and built with fifteen years of technical experience. We provide a personal service at all stages of your project, but with the professional service expected of a larger practice.

We strive to create great designs that respect the environment. During the early design stages we integrate sustainable features, maximising benefits and minimising cost. By encouraging the adoption of sustainable principles into each project we aim to create architecture that offers benefits both today and for future generations.

We utilise leading BIM software to design all our projects in 3D, enabling us to spend more time designing your project, rather than just producing drawings.

Our 3D models are fully accessible by clients, enabling you to get a full understanding of your project rather than trying to interpret technical drawings.

We have experience of working on projects across the construction industry, ranging from individual house to offices & shopping centres.

Working together with other building professionals, including; structural engineers, energy assessors and 3D visualisers, we provide a complete building design service.

Customer Testimonials

MAD Architects designed the extension to our new home. Martin listened to our requirements and suggested a number of different options, explaining possible problems and radical alternative solutions that we hadn’t thought of before providing a couple of concept designs.

We picked the design we liked best and fine tuned it with Martin before he submitted the planning and building regulation applications which were approved without any problems.

Martin service was very professional and he produced an interesting design that we think will be perfect for us.


MAD was commissioned to produce the technical drawings for our substantial home redevelopment. The work was completed to the highest standard with every detail in our brief being incorporated in the final design. The drawings were positively supported by the planners; the quality of the design was specifically highlighted in their report.

Martin’s experience gained in commercial architecture showed, the final detailed drawings were created with such a high level of detail, the tendering process progressed in a very efficient manner. The construction companies involved commended the detail, which enabled them to confidently provide accurate quotes without excessive contingency in the costings.

We would not hesitate to recommend MAD Architects, they did a fabulous job.
