Peter Marino

Signature: A committed modernist who believes in only the highest of luxury quotients, his work emphasizes “materiality, texture, scale, light, and the constant dialogue between interior and exterior.” He is a master architect and designer whose environments telegraph a keen and up-to-the-minute sense of fashion and sexy chic without being trendy, as well as a vast knowledge of art history. He doesn’t feel the need to be as public as many of the “starchitects” that have become household names (i.e., Frank Gehry, Richard Meier), but his work is just as important and groundbreaking. He will handle an entire project—from building, to landscape to interiors and furnishings—and his sense of proportion is impeccable.

Sphere of Work: Asia, the Middle East, North America

Fields: Residential, hotels, restaurants, cultural institutions, commercial real estate, exhibitions, retail, furniture, landscape

Clients: One of his first residential clients was Andy Warhol, and it snowballed from there. “Peter is widely known for his work with the most iconic names in the fashion and art worlds at the retail level,” says his director of communications, Edith Taichman. “And he is currently at work on numerous residential projects as well, worldwide, for a number of private clients.”

Current Notable Projects: Following an international invitational competition, Marino was chosen to design a mixed-use complex in Beirut—retail, spa, hotel, residential—measuring over 177,000 square feet in the historic district. Also, private residences in St. Moritz, Aspen, London, Paris, Milan, New York, Santa Barbara, Palm Beach, Beirut, and Gstaad, as well as Céline boutiques in Paris and New York, and a flagship Lancôme store in Hong Kong

Books: Remarkably, no monograph to date, but he is widely published in a number of books.
