Related Companies has unveiled the interiors of the triplex penthouse residence inside the revered building by Zaha Hadid, at 520 West 28th. The vast interiors of the triplex home spans 6,853 sq. ft., totaling five-bedrooms, and halos atop the 39-unit condominium marking a final look inside the inimitable 21st century dwelling in West Chelsea.
With exposures to the North, South and East, the triplex has direct resident elevator entry, as well as an in-residence elevator, for utmost privacy and ease in transition between the three levels. The five-bedroom home features a corner master bedroom within the lower level that comes equip with private balcony, full dressing room, and dual bathrooms. The lower level also holds three alternate bedroom suites, while the mid-floor entertaining level features a library, powder room for guests, and a 1,250 sq. ft. double-corner great room adorned with private balcony and fireplace. The fifth and final bedroom completes the home and is positioned adjacent to a spacious eat-in kitchen designed by Zaha Hadid in collaboration with Boffi, which holds a full Gaggenau appliance suite.
Framed by floor to ceiling glass windows at a vast height of nearly 11 ft., the residence holds a distinguished, signature three-story internal sculptural staircase, a design by Dame Zaha Hadid herself, mirroring the project's admired sinuous exterior façade and vast interior aesthetic. In addition to the five bedrooms, the home boasts 2,552 sq. ft. of exterior space, including a terraced garden and wraparound roof veranda with an outdoor kitchen, completing the unparalleled home and crowning the 11-story sculpturesque building.
"Each apartment at 520 West 28th was designed with bespoke millwork at its centre that continue the geometries of the building's facade," commented Johannes Schafelner, Project Director, Zaha Hadid Architects. "These hand-crafted pieces are unique to every residence, individually designed and finished for their particular location and function. 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."
