New Interior Photos of Zaha Hadid’s Modern Superyachts

Jazz is a 90-meter superyacht designed by Zaha Hadid in collaboration with German shipbuilders Blohm+Voss. Almost three months ago, we first introduced the design concept for this exceptional watercraft and now the architect’s website has released a few more images, revealing the extravagant interiors fit for anyone looking to travel the seas in the lap of luxury.

As the first in a series of five lavish vessels inspired by an aesthetically similar 128-meter yacht, Jazz is part of Hadid’s Unique Circle Yachts. Like its master prototype, the yacht boasts an exoskeletal shell–a sign of architectural strength coupled with visually pleasing design. Inside the superyacht, the recently unveiled images show a pristine wash of white with a minimal hint of elegant wood grains. The interior structural design and furniture also echo the curves and pores of the exterior.

The completion of Jazz is yet to be determined, as are the following four yachts in the series.

Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, he’ll first build a strong base using staggered coins.
