Inside Peter Marino’s Design Project In New York – The American architect Peter Marino is one of the best interior designers in the world. Responsible for the design of practically every luxury retail outlet such as Dior’s SoHo store, Bvlgari’s Rome outpost and a number of Chanel boutiques around the world are among his projects.
But today we are going to show you his latest project, the Getty, a residential property located in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.
Located on West 24th Street and 10th Avenue, the building designed by Marino consists of the Lehmann Maupin art gallery on the ground floor, an art foundation above that, and six unique residences with interior architecture and design, all also designed by Marino.
The genesis of the apartment building started with Marino’s obsession with Carlos Scarpa’s Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice. Marino says that he takes the lines of light and moves them back and forth in front of solids and that vertical moving and placement are so great because nothing is the same.
Each residence in the Getty has different and unique materials, like Carrara marble, silver leather walls that use a new technique by Fendi, and lava stone coated with Italian beeswax at the entrance hall.
‘We went to Carrara, and we went to the market and we bought blocks of marble where they went, “There’s only one or two of those…”’ explained Marino. ‘I went, “Great.” So we were going for uniqueness, not Donald Trump luxury.’
Victor Group was the developer behind the project. He wanted the property to be as unique as the works of art sold at the myriad galleries on the street, which include Gagosian, Mary Boone, and Marianne Boesky.
