marking a shift away from the hard angles commonly associated with new york’s residential architecture, zaha hadid 520 west 28th is defined by dynamic curves and continuous lines. the project, a series of 39 luxury condos in manhattan’s chelsea neighborhood, is the british architect’s first residential project in the city.

the building’s hand-rubbed metal façade loops its way skywards, creating a multi-level design that seeks to connect indoor and outdoor space in one sweeping movement. internally, loft-like residences are individually crafted, each with hadid’s signature style woven into the design. ‘the interiors integrate seamlessly into the sculpted nature of the building’s exterior, creating one monumental piece of art,’ explain the developers.

hadid-designed kitchen islands include sculpted white marble and high-gloss formed millwork, integrating italian brand boffi’s xila collection. wide-plank white oak flooring adds warmth and texture throughout each of the residences. various master bedroom suites feature expansive private balconies with terrace doors that slide open at the push of a button. units also include en-suite bathrooms, large walk-in closets or dressing rooms, and linen closets. the triplex penthouse features a sculptural three-storey staircase.

  • Wow! These rooms look like they came out of the film 2001 A Space Odyssey. Maybe just a bit out of date. Sorry.

    Steven Elbert Architect says:
  • It’s kind of funny how a design so reliant on technology can feel so out of date
