Architect Zaha Hadid has been commissioned by the residential developer Related Companies to build an 11-story luxury condominium along the High Line in NYC. The 37-unit building marks Hadid’s first commission in the city and it consists of floor-to-ceiling glass walls, wrap-around terraces for each unit, and amenities like an indoor pool and spa.
Each residence will be built with its own distinctive identity, with expansive layouts, thoughtful technological integration and state-of-the-art finishes and features. The development’s bold design will capture the richness of the location’s vibrant and historic urban context.
A chevron pattern enhances the sculpted exterior, while the double-height entrance lobby offers views of the residents’ communal spaces and garden. Zaha Hadid said:
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. With an arrangement that reinvents the spatial experience, each residence will have its own distinctive identity, offering multiple perspectives and exciting views of the neighbourhood.
