Zaha Hadid’s Big Debut in New York City


World-famous architect Zaha Hadid has constructed buildings in nearly every major city. However, New York city has been one of the few places that lacked her unique designs. That’s all about to change with this new 11-story luxury apartment complex that has just been commissioned by developer Related Companies. The building will be erected right next to one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions – High Line park.

Due to very specific and constricting zoning regulations, the concept displays a fair amount of restraint for one of Zaha Hadids’ designs, but still undoubtedly radiates her trademark style. Constructed out of glass and steel, the structure features curved modules that are stacked on top of each other to create 37 separate apartments. The rooms will be outfitted with integrated technology, feature 11-foot-high ceilings, and some will even come with their own private elevators. The complex will also house a rooftop deck, community garden, private courtyard, and indoor pool and spa.

“Our design is an integration of volumes that flow into each other and, following a coherent formal language, create the sensibility of the building’s overall ensemble,” says Hadid. “With an arrangement that reinvents the spatial experience, each residence will have its own distinctive identity, offering multiple perspectives and exciting views of the neighborhood.”
