Owner/Principal Designer: Carol Madeen

Carol Madeen is an Allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). She completed four years of a professional architecture degree program at Montana State University in 1987. She then moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico to begin her internship with Ed Mazria, a leading solar architect and author of The Passive Solar Energy Book. At Mazria Associates, Carol was a designer-draftsman on numerous residential and commercial projects, including the New Mexico Museum of Folk Art and Sol y Sombra, a conference center. Mazria Associates also designed two 30,000 square foot corporate retreat projects in Las Vegas, New Mexico and Lake Arrowhead, California. Carol Madeen designed and specified the finish materials, casework, architectural details and other interior details on both of these projects. She then selected, purchased and installed all of the furnishings and interior decor at both sites. The projects included staff and executive offices, staff dormitories, executive living suites and commercial kitchen facilities. This three-year experience led Carol to her career as an interior designer.
