Zaha Hadid's Miami Beach Condo Reduced!
Modernist architect and first female winner of the of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, Zaha Hadid's work is represented around the globe. Her accomplishments are especially significant as we enter into March, Women's History Month. Hadid, of Iraqi-British citizenship, came from an intellectual and creative family whose father was a wealthy Iraqi industrialist, her mother an artist and brother a writer. She was educated in both English and Swiss boarding schools and seemed to come away with a combination of all her family talents. Hadid died in 2016 from a heart attack at age 65 in the middle of a number of ongoing projects.Having designed award winning buildings in almost all the major cities in the world, when it came to owning a residence where she could decompress from her hectic schedule, she chose a glass walled condo with wrap-around balconies in one of Miami Beach's most coveted buildings, W South Beach. Facing east and south, and located on 300 feet of pristine beachfront, views of the Atlantic Ocean are stunning, yet calming. The 2,299-square-foot residence has a sweeping open floor plan optimized for entertaining and contains three bedrooms, four baths and a completely separate one-bedroom guest apartment. A study in contemporary elegance which would be expected of such talent, the apartment was originally priced at $10 million and has been reduced to $6.5 million. Furnishings will be sold separately. src: miami.curbed.com
