Famous Architects: Peter Marino

One of the most famous architects and top interior designers in the world — known for his sprawling, decadent design for the likes of Louis Vuitton and Bulgari — Peter Marino’s work is found in major cities all over the globe.

He is perhaps most famous for his New York architecture, but this architect has been building all over the world since 1978. In addition to luxury fashion brands, Peter Marino has also demonstrated his extraordinary talent in home architectural design, art museum architecture and award-winning medium art.
As the king of  luxury architecture, the Cornell University graduate made his name in the 1990s with the erection of Barneys flagship stores in New York and Los Angeles.
While he’s created iconic works around the world, to many, he is most known for his relationship with fashion trendsetter Louis Vuitton. He has designed numerous stores, including the SOHO-based Louis Vuitton New York, and most recently he renovated two classic Parisian townhouses located in Place Vendôme for Louis Vuitton’s newest Paris flagship store.
First designed in the early 1700’s by Versailles architect Jules-Hardouin Mansart on the order of Louis XIV as a grandiose setting for political power, Place Vendôme has since become a showcase for luxury goods and a destination for luxury consumers. As the site where Louis Vuitton opened their very first store in 1854 and with neighbors such as top jewelry brands Cartier, Tiffany & Co, Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels and the Hôtel Ritz Paris, this was the perfect location for Louis Vuitton’s new Maison.
