Zaha Hadid’s Miami Apartment Tells A Wonderful Design Story

Late architect Zaha Hadid is an iconic name in the world of interior design, being the mastermind behind some of the most exquisite and most amazing furniture pieces the world has ever seen. She revolutionized the way we perceive not just our furniture but also our homes in general, taking elements we usually take for granted to the rank of art. We found ourselves on several occasions contemplating the idea of a home designed and furnished with some of these amazing pieces by the architect herself. We can have a glimpse at this world if we look at the apartment that Zaha Hadid designed for herself in Miami Beach.

The property is a three-bedroom, four-bathroom apartment in the W Hotel tower on Collins Avenue and recently sold for $5.75 million, this making it one of the most expensive houses in America. The 236 square meter (2.541 sq ft) apartment is oriented towards the south-East and overlooks and Atlantic Ocean, featuring spectacular views and a large balcony to enjoy them from. The interior design is a perfect reflection of the architect’s unique and recognizable style. Several of her own furniture pieces can be identified throughout the apartment, including the Liquid Glacial tables, the Zephyr sofa and the Aria and Avia chandeliers.
