Welcome to 1228 Madison Avenue

Robert A.M. Stern Architects has designed a highly nuanced, boutique scale, exclusive residential building consisting of 14 private full-floor homes, and one duplex penthouse. 1228 Madison Avenue marks the return of elegant, confident architecture to the Upper East Side, enhanced for the 21st century. Deeply rooted in Classical architecture, the richly detailed façade comprised of shot-sawn limestone and heathered brick rises one block from the Guggenheim Museum and Central Park and is surrounded by the best services and shops only Madison Avenue can offer. Grand living rooms and private terraces enjoy spectacular light and views, some of which include Central Park, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, and the iconic Central Park West skyline.

The building’s intricately composed traditional façade is perfectly balanced by designer Kelly Behun’s elegant interiors. The AD100 Designer has designed each home to have its own character and unique charm. With 1228 Madison -- her first multi-residential commission, Kelly Behun shares her passion for inventive detail, and her warm, sophisticated, and eclectic aesthetic for which she is renowned. Classic architecture by the legendary Robert A.M. Stern Architects paired with the chic Kelly Behun interiors create a one-of-a-kind residential experience at 1228 Madison Avenue.

Robert A.M. Stern Architects’ design for 1228 Madison Avenue marks a return to the grand, classical façades of yesteryear, updated with modern materials and amenities. At once sophisticated and understated, commanding and human-scaled, stylish and convivial, the building draws on a catalog of classical elements, arranged into a harmonious whole. It’s designed to rise up through the clear sun of a New York day, an intricate array of arches, string courses and windows, set against a background of subtly patterned brick, creating a composition of light and shadow as persuasive as a piece of music.
