New York is a city cast in stone; the Upper East Side is home to some of the material’s finest architectural expressions. In Beckford House & Tower, we have chosen the same Indiana Limestone that graces many of the city’s most beautiful buildings. With accents of Brynne Brownstone, the tonal subtleties breathe new life into East 80th and 81st streets. The craftsmen’s skill and expertise has fully informed the design; Beckford House & Tower are a celebration of nature and the artisan’s ability to harness its beauty.
Inside, the attention-to-detail is second-to-none. Working in partnership with artisan cabinetmakers such as Christopher Peacock, stone suppliers and manufacturers Vermont Stone Art, fireplace designers Jamb of London, as well as wrought iron workers and glass blowers, Studio Sofield has created a pair of complementary buildings that serve as both a new icon for the Upper East Side and a place of comfort and relaxation.
