Peter Marino Architect Transforms the Cheval Blanc Paris

In the late 1920s, architect Henri Sauvage oversaw completion of a large art deco building for Parisian department store Samaritaine. A century later, the building was reimagined for LVMH, including a portion transformed into the luxury hotel Cheval Blanc Paris by Interior Design Hall of Fame member Peter Marino. The 172,000-square-foot property, which encompasses 72 rooms and suites, is respectful of the structure’s history and site but maintains a modern edge in an ever-changing city. “We transformed it without disregarding the existing heritage,” Marino explains. “The work of French artists and artisans was integrated into every aspect.”

Cozy Up With These New Books by India Mahdavi and Peter Marino

Before we see a written word, this book, which arrives in an untitled but richly graphic slipcase, presents us with 14 pages of a Mahdavi table design seen in many hues and patterns. Almost all the rather large (9½ x 12 ½ inches) subsequent pages are similarly alive with color, as are the Mahdavi interiors. Amid this happy kaleidoscope, however, is a 28-page interview with the designer by Javier Fernandez Contreras, dean of the department of interior architecture at the Geneva University of Art and Design, telling us of her background.

Renowned Architect Peter Marino Talks Inspiration, Context and Avoiding ‘Brand-Boxing’

Few, if any, architects have worked on as many luxury retail projects as Peter Marino. He has been credited with redefining the discipline via big commissions such as a strikingly minimalist Giorgio Armani store in New York and a black- and-white Chanel tower in Tokyo. Both infused aspects of brand identity into the brick-and-mortar, a welcome antidote to more generic storefronts. Over the years, his practice—which has offices in Manhattan, Philadelphia and Southampton—has worked residential designs as well, a discipline Marino broke into by renovating Andy Warhol’s Upper East Side townhouse in the late ’70s. It’s retail, though, and specifically...

How I Spend It: Peter Marino, architect, artist, apiarist

Unlike my day job – architecture, which tends to be somewhat fixed – there is nothing fixed about gardening. It’s the antidote to modern life and keeps me from going crazy. The only thing that’s certain is that by next spring 20 per cent of your garden will have changed. Either one or two trees will have been blown out by a nor’easter – as happened to me last summer – or the crocosmia won’t come back because it didn’t thrive in winter. Gardens are worse than children. You want to use the Austin Powers line on them – “Oh, do behave!” – but they don’t.

Report: Tiffany brings on renowned architect Peter Marino for flagship renovation

Tiffany & Co. is proceeding with the massive renovation of its Fifth Avenue flagship but there have been some changes at the top. The famed jeweler, which is now owned by global luxury powerhouse LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has tapped architect Peter Marino to take over the renovation, reported Women’s Wear Daily. Tiffany closed the iconic, 10-story building in January 2020 to begin work on the remodel. (With the flagship closed for construction, the retailer has been operating out of an adjacent building.) The pandemic has caused delays, and the work is now not expected to be completed until Christmas 2022 or early 2023, the report said.
