The final construction contract will have a value of more than £1 billion, making it one of the largest private building contracts ever to be awarded. Works are due to start on site in early 2016, alongside the on-going construction of Circus West (Phase 1) and the regeneration of the Power Station itself (Phase 2). Together, Phase 1, 2 and 3 will be the largest single development project in central London since Canary Wharf.

Hadid’s Chelsea

Zaha Hadid’s international body of work is largely defined by graceful curves inspired by nature.
She brings this sensibility to 520 West 28th, marking a dramatic shift away from the hard angles that dominate standard residential architecture.
The building’s elegant hand-crafted metal façade is driven by one continuous line, which loops its way skywards. These dynamic curves create a distinctive chevron pattern that embraces interlacing levels, maximizing privacy and security between residences.
As the chevron weaves up from the ground, its folds create a multi-level design that links residence exteriors and interiors together in one sweeping movement. The result is a vertical landscape sitting directly on the High Line, comprising 39 unique residences.

Zaha Hadid approaches the amenities areas as four different collections that are tied together with a clean and consistent palette of materials.
These elements are then incorporated in slightly nuanced ways to create a progression in mood and atmosphere based on the level of intimacy of each space.
A seamless lifestyle is assured by Related Management’s holistic approach to service as both the developer and manager of this unique residential building, ensuring that residents of 520 West 28th will receive a proven suite of offerings on par with Zaha Hadid’s visionary design.
Residents can also curate their own tailored experience with access to an extensive collection of concierge services through their designated Luxury Attaché representative.
39-unit Building including bespoke kitchens manufactured by Boffi, the building will also host gallery spaces as part of a wider arts initiative in its immediate vicinity.

The collection of residences at 520 West 28th represents Zaha Hadid’s vision for modern living.
Working within her distinctive architectural language, she applies a powerful elegance and detail to the interiors, focusing on nuances that reflect the overall experience of the building.
The 39 generous loft-like residences are individually crafted, each with the artist’s signature mark woven into the design. Residents become immersed in Hadid’s fluid world—a thoughtful collection of living spaces.
The interiors integrate seamlessly into the sculpted nature of the building’s exterior, creating one monumental piece of art.
Generous master bedroom suites include en-suite master bathrooms, large walk-in closets or dressing rooms, and linen closets.

Adriana Sassoon Design & Team Building The Art of Simple Living

Sometimes we have to give up the Artist the Perfectionist personality ” The Dreamer” without loosing the Vision of the essence of the dream in order to deliver what’s asked in reality by the consumer demands. Not everyone wants the ultra modern architecture or design .

Perhaps…. Maybe they don’t even know what it means!

Each individual evolve differently, but since I am an investor and real estate developer, I’m still a Designer .

But I also have a niche to supply this specific demand. I’m not going to let someone else take my business opportunity to supply what’s asked of me.

Maybe one day the same person who bought one of my projects will come back requesting the futuristic, edgy design aesthetics that I can deliver through my work and visionary mind.

At least I know I can make my customers happy at the moment.

That’s called #Gratitude

Thank you !!!!!!

The New Living Revolution Micro Apartments

The Carmel Place NYC

The Apartment Aesthetics are amazing and very Comfortable

We’ve heard a lot about Carmel Place, New York City’s micro-apartment building, in the past few years. I recently was able to get a preview tour of the finished project.
The Interior Design is gorgeous and supper functional .
Location is in a Great area :Carmel Place, at 335 East 27th Street.
The apartments have neutral, pallets with a minimalistic style with lots of white and shades of grey.
The Lifestyle Brand is called Ollie.
The essence of Ollie’s Properties is to bring micro studios to the market and eliminate all the hassles and conveniences that come with that.
Designed by nARCHITECTS, the project is the first micro units apartment building in New York and consists of 55 studio apartments for both market rate and affordable tenants. Each apartment is one module, offering 260 to 360 square feet of space. All modules were fabricated at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
While it may have garnered some controversy for its price tag (although 40% of the 55 apartments are affordable, market-rate rents start at $2,600 a month), Carmel Place is an extraordinary accomplishment for its design, modular construction.

The eight-story building has a black-and-white exterior and interior design details modeled after the Duomo di Siena’s bell tower in Italy and inspired by the location’s newsprint heritage. Maisonettes—first-floor residences with separate entrances, high ceilings, and patios—add a neighborly touch.
