Zaha Hadid Architects’ first project in New York City

The residential building conveys the layered civic realm of the High Line, interpreting its spatial and material qualities.

Between the streets of New York and the High Line, there is a particular urban condition, a layered civic territory that has developed over generations. This realm features a community of over 350 art galleries that has seen the High Line’s transformation from abandoned freight rail line to public park.

Zaha Hadid Architects’ first project in New York City, 520 West 28th, tries to interpret this lively context. The split levels of the design define varied living spaces and echoes the multiple layers of civic space on 28th Street and the High Line. Designed and constructed with a practiced understanding of material qualities and manufacturing techniques, the facade 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.
