Latest renovation project done for Bulgari to their New York Bulgari Store which is the luxury brands flagship store was done by Famous architect, Peter Marino. Which locates at one of the high-class locations of the brand in the entire world, New York´s Fifth Avenue. Anyone how is familiar with famous architects and their project works know also that famous architect Peter Marino doesn’t turn away from a challenge and a challenge it’s exactly what luxury brand Bulgari gave him!
Peter Marino and Bulgari had been worked together in the past with successful results, so you won’t be surprised by finding out that Marino nailed the challenge and produced a stunning renovation! Don’t believe us? Than see for yourself!
In this renovation project, Marino glanced to the luxury jewelry brand’s Roman origins. Occupying a corner place in the iconic Crown Building, the store’s new crisscrossed and rosette-studded facade is a standout on the road, but the marble-trimmed, glass-encased entry is a replica of the brand’s flagship in Rome.
Inside the store, Peter Marino has combined Italian design culture with American innovation. Hand-placed marble and glass tesserae make up the bright white floor under jewelry cases inspired by Carlo Scarpa‘s Delfi Table.
Exceptional collection cases sit on marble-topped tables by Osvaldo Borsani and Angelo Mangiarotti, and large Carrera half-columns rise along the border of the store. Two grand Gio Ponti lusters, purchased by Bulgari from the hall of the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Rome, light the double-height space from above.
For the 4,500-square-foot interior, more bronze shades enclose the latest statement stairway up to the balustrade by the restored floor. Their matching geometry has extensive ancient origins: Its pattern is acquired from that on the floor of the Pantheon, an intervention Peter Marino also had devised for the Rome and London stores, two projects he recently completed to Bulgari and that landed him this major job!
