Today, The Most Expensive Homes blog will explore the futuristic interiors of a $50 million NYC Penthouse that was actually designed by the legendary architecture group, Zaha Hadid Architects. Located on 520 West 28th, the astonishing penthouse features a sculptural white staircase, a sprawling rooftop terrace and High Line views. This specific home occupies the final three floors of an 11-storey luxury building and it is currently on the luxury real estate market, so if you a fan of Zaha Hadid Architects’ work, then this is your great opportunity to experience it first hand.
This beautiful penthouse comes with a stunning kitchen as well as an open-plan lounge and a spacious dining room. A well-appointed library and five bedrooms can be found across the first two levels and while the third one boasts a huge rooftop patio. ZHA opted to introduce simple yet extremely elegant finishes throughout the house, from wooden floors to walls painted in muted tones.
“Within the penthouse, this centrepiece is manifest as the sculptural staircase that extends all three floors, connecting its interior with the large outdoor terrace. An evolution of the flowing spiral staircases within Zaha Hadid’s cultural buildings, this staircase is designed with multiple perspectives that engage perception and draw the eye from the horizontal to vertical – uniting the penthouse’s three levels with the fluid design language of the building’s facade.” – Johannes Schafelner, ZHA project director
In addition, the house also features a curvaceous kitchen island which was conceived in collaboration with Italian brand, Boffi. Furthermore, the penthouse has 2,552 square feet of outdoor space with outstanding areas such as a top-level terrace incorporated with a kitchen, dining area and lounge, and even numerous beds for some quality sunbathing sessions.
When in the master bedroom, owners will have access to a private balcony where can enjoy spectacular views of the city. A dressing room and a couple of bathrooms complete the luxurious look.
Residents of the building will also have access to a skylit swimming pool, a striated IMAX theatre and an extraordinary and bright gym.
In conclusion, the project was first led by Zaha Hadid herself but after her unfortunate death in 2016, her partner Patrik Schumacher took the reins to carry on her remarkable legacy. The penthouse was officially completed earlier this year and now is up for grabs for $50 million, making it the most expensive estate in the block.
