Andre Kikoski Architect, an award-winning Manhattan architecture firm, designed the interiors and four model homes of 1280 Fifth Avenue, the residential tower over the Museum for African Art authored by Robert A.M. Stern. Andre Kikoski Architect is recognized for the internationally acclaimed The Wright at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

The interiors and model homes reflect the four seasons in Central Park, the building’s neighbor, and feature a unified palette of natural, renewable materials including teak wood, limestone, abalone shell tile, American black walnut and cypress wood. Sculptural elements within are inspired by natural geometries and organic textures. The model homes feature furniture from the extensive collections of the venerated French manufacturer Ligne Roset, who provided assistance on the model home furniture.

The twenty one-story 165,000 square-foot building is developed by Brickman.

Andre Kikoski will lead the tour of the building’s interior, beginning at 6:30pm, followed by drinks.
