Who Are We

Michael Madden Associates (MMA) was founded in 1990 and is a professional community master planning and design firm located in Laguna Niguel, California. MMA provides clients with experience, innovation, creativity, attention to detail, team leadership and viable planning and design solutions establishing a sense of place, scale and association with the natural and built environments within the resulting communities. We offer a comprehensive range of services with a fresh and creative approach to the design industry.

Michael Madden Associates strives to provide clients with creative, innovative and well managed projects. We believe strongly in the interrelationship of market analysis, environmental assessment, land planning, landscape architecture, architecture, and engineering. We are committed to the idea that the built environment should be conceived through a design process that develops a healthy and compatible relationship between land uses and land forms, plant materials and the natural environment, buildings, infrastructure and market demand. Working with our clients MMA strives to develop sustainable communities with diverse housing types, integrated shopping and retail services, recreation and open space features, civic components and transportation alternatives planned within pedestrian oriented community fabrics.

Experience on numerous complex projects has proven the value of a team approach to projects. Michael Madden Associates emphasizes a process that involves the client and all consultants, a process that results in innovative ideas through the exchange of information, the result of good team communications. Every project is viewed individually to assess the most appropriate planning, design and development strategy with which to formulate plans. Principals of New Urbanism, Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND) and Urban Villages are guiding forces in the MMA planning approach and implemented in projects based upon site characteristics, jurisdictional influences, environmental and physical opportunities and constraints, and economic/market research. We believe strongly in the hands-on approach to planning and design assuring that the tasks undertaken are tailored directly to the project setting, location and client’s needs.

Michael Madden Associates is currently involved in projects throughout California, in Nevada and New Mexico. Experience has bred awareness regarding the value of quality planning, design and bottom-line economics. Our objective: helping our clients implement realistic, creative and economically responsible projects.
