We have worked with Michael on a major renovation of our home. He was bloody brilliant! Not only did he provide an excellent design (while being very responsive to our changing ideas along the way) he also, crucially, shepherded it through both the resource and building consent processes with the council. This was a crucial added bonus. Add to that his responsiveness / excellent communication skills, and you have an absolute winner. We would recommend him and his services to anyone unreservedly.

We recently worked with Macfie Architectural Design to extend our home. Michael was flexible with our ideas and helped us create our dream renovation within budget. Michael kept us updated during the conceptual and council stages. He was quick to answer any emails and had fantastic communication. We are looking forward to plans coming to fruition in the coming months. We really enjoyed working with Michael and would highly recommend his services. Nyki, Gene and Kain.

Michael has been brilliant in not only developing designs from architectural concepts but also in helping manage the whole consenting process. I would highly recommend Michael and Rebecca for any housing work that you may have. David

Michael understood my requirements and provided an excellent service on a minor dwelling currently under construction. From the initial consultation through the resource consent ( before Auckland Unitary Plan amended) and building consent was a pleasure working with Michael and Maddesign. Professional, excellent customer service and recommended good builders. Would hesitate to recommend Michael and Maddesign for professional, efficient and comprehensive service. A+++

I have engaged Macfie Architectural Design for my purpose built commercial coworking building. Michael and his team were able to quickly understand my vision and help create what will be New Zealand's first of its kind coworking + out of school care + childcare facility all in one. Michael is passionate and easy to work with. He has been able to accomodate all of our ideas. We are looking forward to making use of our new building with our community. Thanks team! Highly recommend these guys!

We found Michael at Macfie Architectural Design very easy to deal with. He is extremely thorough with his drawings and did an excellent job with our building plans. He always responded quickly to our queries and was happy to incorporate changes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Michael provides a great level of service, from discussing concepts and alternative plans through to providing updates on the progress with council consents. We have used Michael on two houses and will do so again.

A very good job done on designing our more than ordinary barn! A few delays with Auckland planning changes delaying our project but the team work very well and got our design ideas particularly given the remote situation and that communication was largely via email.

Outstanding Architectural services provided by Michael and his team. I just told him about my plans for the renovation and he took care of the rest from doing the architectural plans to getting building consent for it without any issues. Thank you for providing such an awesome service.

Michael was fantastic to deal with. Our original house plans, on record with the council, were completely different from what was actually there. He came and measured the existing house and drafted plans. We then worked on changes for our renovation to add an en suite and remove walls in the living areas. Michael managed the consent process with council too. He made the whole process very easy, even a few variations to plans as we went along. I have and will continue to recommend him.

Michael McFee from MAD Design did a great job in designing a bedroom addition which included a walk in wardrobe and bathroom. Plus converting a bedroom into a bathroom and converting a garage in to a self contained unit. The design included all decks, some on difficult sloping ground. Michael was helpful with our requests and was always willing to accept variations. He always made time to answer our queries and was pleasant throughout the process. We would be happy to recommend MAD Design

Great team to work with, nothing was too much trouble and came up with great options. Thank you Michael and Rebecca. I would have no reservations about referring MAD Design to anyone either building from scratch or having a renovation done. once again Maria and I are over the moon with the service and the plans drawn.

I was impressed from my first conversation with Rebecca. Both her and Michael went out of their way to help someone new to the process. Michael came out to see the job and quote within a week, despite it being a small job. He even recommended a fabulous company for the doors who I have also gone with after getting quotes. He did a fabulous job, and got it through council in record time, two weeks! I would definitely use their services again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.
