Martine Castrillon, Designer of Black Lion Investment Group, is known for producing spaces that are classically modern with authentic hints of the past that compliment contemporary living. Translating a client's vision into a design that harmoniously interprets the intent of each space is no easy task - however, Martine thoughtfully and effortlessly accomplishes just that.
Martine launched her career in Los Angeles where she quickly built a celebrity client list. Martine's exquisite residential portfolio includes the private residence of Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas in the exclusive New York co-op The Dakota, the former Beverly Hills home of Hollywood legend Natalie Wood purchased by SONY Pictures Entertainment's CEO and the private Dallas residence of the Princess of Saudi Arabia.

After Los Angeles, Martine joined ID & Design International, where every year of her tenure the firm was voted Top Interior Designers by the Network of Executive Women in Hospitality.
Martine now brings her passion for achieving design excellence to Black Lion, where she oversees all design aspects of the Group's residential and commercial portfolio. Martine graduated Magna Cum Laude from Miami International University of Art and Design, where every year she was awarded the first place Design Excellence Award for Commercial Design by the American Society of Interior Designers.
