Madeleine Blanchfield is the director of Madeleine Blanchfield Architects, a studio of eight architects and designers based in Paddington, Sydney, established in 2009 with a focus on houses. Prior to that Madeleine worked in London and Paris, and was associate director at one of Sydney’s leading design firms. She studied applied science in environmental design at University of Canberra and architecture at University of New South Wales. 

Madeleine has worked across a variety of projects both in Australia and abroad, from private homes and villas, penthouse apartments, multi-unit residential and commercial developments, and large urban projects in China.

“We believe that beautiful spaces can also be flexible and functional and we create honest, clear designs thorough diligent analysis, exploration and attention to detail. We create homes that are bold, luminous and elevate the spirit.”

Madeleine’s expertise lies in creating work that is timeless and elegant, refined and thoughtful, with a goal to deliver architecture that has integrity and depth. Collaboration with the client is at the foundation of every residential project, in order to draw out the unique and personal traits that make a house a home.
