New images of ZHA’s first New York City project revealed
Architecture photographers Hufton+Crow have released new images of 520 West 28th, Zaha Hadid Architects’ first New York City project.
The 11-story 520 West 28th consists of 39 residences with 11ft coffered ceilings, tailored interiors with Boffi kitchens by Zaha Hadid Design, and integrated technologies, including automated valet parking and storage.
The split levels of the design define varied living spaces and echo the multiple layers of civic space on 28th Street and the High Line, a layered urban space that cuts across the west side of Manhattan.
These split levels are expressed within the interlocking chevrons of 520 West 28th’s hand-crafted steel façade which carries the spirit of Chelsea’s industrial past; its detailed workmanship continues the venerable tradition within New York’s historic architecture of enhancing the public realm.
Designed and constructed with a practiced understanding of material qualities and manufacturing techniques, the façade conveys the attention to detail evident throughout 520 West 28th—brushed and tinted by hand to resonate with the adjacent structures of the High Line and its neighbourhood.
DesignMENA has also revealed the interiors of the condos, also designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.
