Peter Pennoyer Architects design Madison Avenue condo
The Benson, located at 1045 Madison Avenue and East 79th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is a 19 story boutique condominium, with 15 striking and classically inspired residences that are the avenue’s first in more than 20 years.
The building’s aesthetic takes its influence from the apartment houses of the surrounding Upper East Side neighborhood. Its façade has hand-carved features, mullioned windows and terraces with intricate ironwork. Internally there are signature fireplaces, custom crown moldings on the ceilings and marble vanities.
