Works that give you a
Way of Seeing
To see, DRAW every day.
Benjamin Marcus Architect LLC is a full-service, multi-discipline design firm, shepherding projects from the client's first dreams to a custom light's first switch, with all the listening and oversight each unique project's illumination commands. With programs spanning built works from the ground-up, all the way to a letterhead gracing stationery on the desk inside, no concern is too large, no detail too small to deserve our focused care & attention.
Having begun his career on the messy, practical side as a Construction Supervisor renovating Tiffany & Co's Fifth Avenue flagship store, principal Benjamin Marcus honed his skills in the offices of architectural luminaries such as Frank Gehry & Santiago Calatrava, and brings experience as Executive Architect for luxury retailers Ermenegildo Zegna & Chloe among others, to inform an aptitude for meticulousness, no matter the scale of the work.
Marcus earned his Masters degree from SCI-Arc [Southern California Institute of Architecture] after graduating with a BA in Philosophy from NYU. He lives in New York, where he has maintained his own multi-disciplinary practice - combining Architecture, Graphic Design, Illustration and full Project Management since 2010. Benjamin Marcus Architect is licensed in both New York and Pennsylvania.
Benjamin Marcus has been drawing every day from a very young age.
