new images of zaha hadid’s only residential building in new york illustrate the development’s amenity spaces as the project nears completion. located directly on the high line, ‘520 west 28th’ includes many of hadid’s signature stylistic elements, with wrap around terraces, glass-enclosed pavilions, and sculptural internal features. the development comprises 39 residential units, all enclosed behind a hand-rubbed metal façade.

the new images of 520 west 28th — revealed by development firm related — present the interior amenities of zaha hadid’s design for the first time, including a 75-foot sky lit pool, a sculptural wall in the lobby, and the only private IMAX theater in new york city. ‘zaha hadid approaches the amenities areas as four different collections that are tied together with a clean and consistent palette of materials,’ says the development’s website. ‘these elements are then incorporated in slightly nuanced ways to create a progression in mood and atmosphere based on the level of intimacy of each space.’
