MADAME represents an interdisciplinary partnership of architects, designers, artisans, theorists, technical experts, builders, clients and machines with a high level of expertise in designing and creating objects, buildings and urban scale projects.

MADAME is the beauty and the beast, summons djinns, tumbles into rabbit holes, howls at the moon and catches its own shadow.

If you want to create your own tale, start a new MADAME project and be a part of us!

You can find us right in the heart of Vienna, “2nd star to the right and straight on till morning”

“… and thanks for all the fish”
MADAME
