Zaha Hadid made history in 2004 by becoming the first woman to ever win the coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize. Throughout her career, the Iraqi-British architect was known for crafting fluid forms, asymmetrical exteriors, and curvaceous designs. Her pieces were on display throughout many locations from the Vitra Fire Station in Germany to the Opus in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa district. Before Hadid suddenly passed away in 2016, her former private residence at the W South Beach displayed many of the same design principles that she commonly adhered to.
The unit recently sold for $5.75 million, which features three bedrooms and four baths. Dramatic curves and lines within the home provided the crisp white interiors with a distinctly futuristic feel and the floor-to-ceiling walls of glass overlook the Atlantic Ocean, giving the home a sense of relaxation.
The unit is located on the southeast corner of the building that features 2,541 square-feet of living space. The open-concept living/dining area opens to a wraparound terrace that overlooks the water, while the secluded all-white kitchen comes with sleek cabinets and state-of-the-art appliances, according to Robb Report.
The master bedroom is featured in white with a walkout terrace and a tiled master bath. The master bathroom also consists of a walk-in shower and a deep soaking tub. Within the community, you can find a sparkling pool and spa, as well as the beautiful beach within walking distance to enjoy the crashing waves and sandy toes.
Hadid lived in the residence while designing One Thousand Museum, which was her first (and final) residential offering in the Western Hemisphere. The tower holds 62 floors and is located on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami. Not surprisingly, the home shows off much of Hadid’s style, complete with bold curves, geometric patterns and glass-sheathed penthouses.
