Founded in 2002, MADE is an innovative design/build practice distinguished by our belief in integrating the architect and builder at every stage of the creative process. By combining a design studio, a fabrication workshop and a contracting team under one roof, we offer a range of services unmatched by a conventional architectural practice. The work of MADE is primarily focused on private residential homes and custom retail boutiques within New York City and the surrounding area.

MADE operates under the leadership of Ben Bischoff as the Principal. Ben is a registered architect and contractor in New York. In 2017, Ben was welcomed as a member of the Board of Trustees at Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon. Ben holds a Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Richmond. While at Yale, Ben was awarded the David Schwarz Good Times Award traveling fellowship for excellence in design and served as the construction supervisor for two years on the Yale Building Project. Prior to founding MADE, he worked as a designer at Steven Harris Architects and Deborah Berke and Partners. Ben has presented MADE’s work in lectures at Mississippi State University, Tulane University, University of Kansas, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University.

MADE’s projects have been featured in numerous publications including Architectural Digest, Dwell, Elle Décor, House & Garden, Interior Design, New York Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, World of Interiors and selected book publications including Restoring a House in the City, Kaleidoscope: Living in Color & Patterns, XS Green: Big Ideas Small Buildings, and the recently published New York Living: Re-Inventing Home.
