A Look Inside Zaha Hadid's First New York City Residences

A modern architectural marvel is nearly complete along The Highline in West Chelsea. 520 W 28th Street is the late Zaha Hadid's first project in New York City. The building by the Related Group is slated to open this summer.

They recently unveiled two model residences, and we took a look inside Residence 20, a 4 bedroom home situated on The Highline side of the building with views of the The Highline and the Empire State Building. The model has been elegantly designed by Jennifer Post.

520 W 28th is very iconic of Zaha Hadid's signature style. The design of the building is characterized by graceful curves that draw inspiration from nature. The facade of the building, with its rounded windows, is a contrast to the hard angles that typically dominate residential real estate. 

The facade of the building creates a chevron pattern, weaving the interior and exteriors of the residences into one free-flowing design. The south side of the building is being transformed into an area that will house new galleries and a sculpture garden. 

The building is comprised of 39 hand-crafted residences to which Hadid paid careful attention, incorporating her signature touch throughout. The most notable element is the curved windows in some of the rooms.

Kitchens are custom design be Hadid in collaboration with luxury Italian brand, Boffi and feature a unique island sculpted from white marble and formed millwork and Gaggenau appliances. Master baths are finished with hand-selected white marble with a freestanding six-foot sculptural bathtub by Teuco Guzzini with fixtures by Dornbracht.

6 Starchitect Designed Buildings You Need to Know

A collection of  star architects, or "starchitects", has emerged as the leading group of designers for everything from residential buildings to public works and museums. Residential buildings  bearing their names are coming up from New York to Miami and around the globe. Starchitects have been responsible for the "branding" of buildings and real estate. We have seen consumer preference shift toward branding in other segments and product categories, and now, we see the trend in real estate with high-end consumers being attracted to a "branded" building. 

While there are myriad factors that influence a buildings value such as location, functional design, and state of the market, starchitect designed buildings have seemed to maintain their value, or increase in value compared to those that are not branded in a similar way. 

New York City residential real estate is certainly participating in the Starchitect Boom. Here are 6 projects designed by Starchitects that are influencing the NYC real estate market you need to know:

100 E 53rd - Norman Foster

The 94 homes have a light and airy feel thanks to the glass curtain wall and large living spaces which include wall space optimized for art displays. Loft residences incorporate architectural elements  that are reminiscent of sleek and sophisticated downtown spaces including diamond-polished high-grade concrete flooring and architectural concrete walls.

520 W 28th Street- Zaha Hadid

520 W 28th Street is the late Hadid's only project in New York, and thus, has an inherent special value to it as it brings her signature elements along the High Line. The design is based on graceful curves inspired by nature that are a constrast to the hard angles generally seen in residential architecture. The hand-rubbed metal facade is one continuous line that works its way toward the sky. The curves of the building create a distinct chevron pattern on the exterior of the building, linking residence exteriors and interiors together in one sweeping movement. 

The building is located directly on the High Line and will be comprised of 39 residences, with each loft-like home uniquely crafted and featuring a custom sculptural element in an elegant opalescent finish. Interiors integrate seamlessly into the sculptured nature of the building from the kitchen islands to the terraces. Kitchens are custom designed by Zaha Hadid in collaboration with Italian kitchen specialists, Boffi, and include wide plank oak flooring and Gaggenau appliances. Master baths are characterized by white marble contrasted against black crosscut Nero Marquinia marble with a freestanding six-foot tub by Teuco Guuzzini.
