We are delighted to present this lovely two-bedroom apartment at 520 West 28th Street in New York City. Affectionately known as the Zaha Hadid Building, it was one of the last projects by the famed architect and is her only residential project in New York.
The exterior of the building carries Dame Hadid’s signature style, embracing a curving design that stands in sharp contrast to the hard angles and steep lines of its surrounding buildings. The handcrafted metal façade forms a chevron pattern with interlaced floors connected by a series of ‘folds’, appearing to wind its way upwards from the ground. This highly distinctive tower comprises a limited selection of just 39 unique residences. It is a perfect fit in the neighbourhood of West Chelsea, the shining jewel of New York’s art and culture scene.
This apartment is a testament to that stunning aesthetic with its flowing open spaces and carefully chosen finishes. The design is contemporary and quite minimalistic, relying on bold shapes to highlight the space over fine detailing. The living room, dining room and kitchen are united in one open plan, and two en-suite bedrooms are located alongside this space. The windows are for the most part floor-to-ceiling, occasionally taking on unusual shapes and angles to reflect the sweeping curvature of the building’s exterior. Each facet of the apartment bears the signature Zaha Hadid touch in collaboration with other artists such as Boffi, the Italian lifestyle specialists who helped design the custom kitchen. A custom-made sculpture in the living room helps to make the apartment one-of-a-kind.
Aside from its fantastic residential offerings, 520 West 28th Street aims to provide a selection of on-site amenities that will attend to every comfort of its residents. These include a skylit 75-foot indoor swimming pool, a lobby with a hand-sculpted 34-foot feature wall and a desk designed by Dame Hadid, New York’s only private IMAX cinema, a state-of-the-art fitness center designed in conjunction with fitness innovators The Wright Fit, and a lounge with a chef’s kitchen and terrace. An automated valet takes care of parking and automated storage is also available. Residents can further customize their living experience thanks to a dedicated concierge service managed by Luxury Attache.
This stunning apartment located in one of New York’s most celebrated cultural districts and offering stunning views of its surrounding skyline would be a perfect residential option for our most discerning clients.
