The Getty Residences by Peter Marino Architect: 2019 Best of Year Winner for Kitchen & Bath
Never one to shy away from extreme elegance, architect Peter Marino stays true to form with this residential project in Manhattan. Overlooking the glorious High Line park, the 12-story, 56,000-square-foot condominium tower brings together all the passions of the Interior Design Hall of Fame member: art, design, and overriding luxury—as well as his deep appreciation for stone, present throughout his oeuvre. “I love that no two pieces are the same,” he says. “Every slab is unique and beautiful in its own way.”
Here, each bathroom and powder room in the building’s five units is different, clad with its own species. Rare, colorful, and highly striated, they include Sun and Gold Mirage onyx and brown Zabrino and amber Striato marble. Particularly dramatic are the black-veined white onyx walls surrounding a custom vanity in deep charcoal resin in one apartment’s expansive master bathroom. So strong is the overall statement, little else is needed. It’s Marino’s own brand of minimalism.
Project Team: Peter Marino, Paola Pretto, Craig Spiegel, Michael Kontoudis, Jiro Onishi, Lauren Mitus.
