BOFFO Show House Opens at Madison Jackson Building Next Week

In a couple of weeks,  prospective buyers will get their first crack at the new apartments inside the Madison Jackson building, the Lower East Side’s newest condo conversion.  But even before sales begin, there have been several interesting events at the former school building at 371 Madison Street.  On Tuesday, an especially ambitious project opens to the public — the 2012 BOFFO Show House.

BOFFO is an arts organization founded four years ago to promote collaboration among young designers and architects.  Its co-creators, Faris Al-Shathir and Gregory Sparks, turned to up-and-coming designer Andrew Yes to curate the interiors of four duplex condominium units at the Madison Jackson.
