Benjamin Marcus brings over 25 years of experience in design, project management & construction administration, to the service of individual clients and their particular needs, styles and budgets.
Seminal background in the employ of others includes the skills honed serving as executive architect for luxury retailers Ermenegildo Zegna, Chloe & Ralph Lauren among other commercial, educational, transportation and residential projects.
Building from the ground up, interior renovation, furniture, lighting and graphics - all scales of design are invitations to improve the ways we live and work, and no detail is too small to warrant attention.
Listening to the objectives of clients, and balancing the demands of governing boards, municipal agencies, budgets & schedules with the opportunities of the creative impulse are challenges met always with energy, optimism & ordered enthusiasm - characteristics Benjamin is known for.
Eager communication and hand-drawing as a way-of-seeing possible solutions, are key to his process.
Benjamin earned his Master of Architecture from the Southern California Institute of Architecture and Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from New York University.
He is licensed to practice in New York and Pennsylvania.
