BENJAMIN ANDRES ARCHITEKT is a multidisciplinary architecture and design firm founded in 2017 in New York City. We understand the lifestyle needs of our clients and prioritize them equally with time and budget parameters towards the realization of informed designs that will stand the test of time. Our appreciation of history and detail goes hand in hand with the integration of modern building technology. Our work is not limited to any particular style.

BENJAMIN ANDRES ARCHITEKT creates innovative designs that address and transcend functional and environmental considerations, and are, importantly, beautiful.

Our clients value quality and know that good design is never superficial. They recognize that the quality found in their projects comes from the thoroughness and open-mindedness of our thinking as much as from the material construction.

BENJAMIN ANDRES ARCHITEKT  has professionals licensed to practice architecture in the state of New York and is qualified to provide a complete range of architectural design services for new construction and adaptive reuse of existing buildings.

We have worked in many of the most significant residential landmarks in New York City, including the Eldorado at 300 Central Park West (Emery Roth, in collaboration with Margon & Holder, 1929), 834 Fifth Avenue  (Rosario Candela, 1931), and One Sutton Place South (Rosario Candela, 1925), among others.

We are currently engaged in apartment renovations in TriBeCa, a vacation home in Lagos, Nigeria, and a residence in Austerlitz, NY.

Our Interior Design services integrate seamlessly with the architectural design and technical aspects of each project, providing complete oversight of the project from start to finish.


BENJAMIN ANDRES started his architectural education in 1998, when he joined the Buero fuer Organisches Bauen in Ehlingen, Germany to become an Architectural Draftsman.  The office focuses on high performance, environmentally friendly buildings, such as low-energy houses, passive houses and plus-energy houses. 

Benjamin graduated in 2000 and moved to Stuttgart to begin his architecture studies at the University of Stuttgart. He received a Master of Architecture degree  in 2005.  

Benjamin then joined CCR Architekten in Stuttgart before moving to New York City in 2007 where he worked at BWArchitects and OPUS.AD, overseeing a variety of projects in both the high-end residential and commercial sector.

His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor and Domino.

"Benjamin has an incredible eye and is extremely kind, personable, and knowledgable. I am reminded daily of his guidance on everything from the intricacies of figuring out how to fit a standard sized bathtub into a small bathroom to selecting just the right paint color for our beloved living room built-in to knowing exactly what sort of hardware to choose for our bathroom and kitchen cabinets. In addition to his talent and expertise, he is so reliable and trustworthy "
