PROGRAM:
Interior for one floor of the hotel (28 standard rooms,
2 suites & common area)

CLIENT:
Grupo Urvasco, Madrid, Spain

SIZE:
1200 m²

CONCEPT:
The Client allowed us full autonomy, the brief – to design a floor of a hotel comprising 30 rooms and all common parts. The objective, to
ensure a dynamic and customized project. We took the opportunity to create a new domestic language of architecture, driven by new
developments in digital design and enhanced manufacturing capabilities. This new dialogue emphasises the complex and continuo us
nature of the design and the merging of disparate forms and texture. In the rooms floor, wall and furniture are all one continuous
surface or skin, making them pieces of art. Every single element – the walls, bedroom door with its LED signs, sliding door to the
bathroom, bathtub and vanity unit, bed, shelves, chair and a cantilevered bench by the window which doubles up as a table – is
rounded in a single curved sweep.

CAPITAL HILL RESIDENCE
Moscow, Russia
2006–TBC




Render © Zaha Hadid Architects
PROGRAM:
Private Villa

CLIENT:
Capital Hill

CONCEPT:
The project is located on the north-face hillside in Russia, where natural vegetation such as pine and birch trees grow up to 20 m high.
Within this stunning location the programme of the villa is divided into two main components. The first one is strategically placed t o be
merged with the sloped landscape, while a separate volume floats, 22 meters above the ground to benefit from the dynamic view s of
the forest over the trees.

The form for the villa comes from the natural topography. With its fluid geometries, the building emerges from the landscape, remaining
partially embedded in the hillside, in order to articulate the existing surroundings with the artificial landscape. The program is organized
vertically on four levels. The lower level or basement is envisioned as leisure space; the programme in this level includes a living room,
massage and fitness areas as well as sauna and hamman baths. One level up, main living room, dining, kitchen, entertainment, indoor
swimming room and parking spaces are located on the ground floor. The main entrance lobby, study/library, guest room and chil dren’s
room are distributed on the first floor while the master bedrooms and a lounge with exterior terrace occupy the upper level.

The two main components of the house are articulated by three legs. These concrete columns establish a strong dialogue betwee n
both levels while functioning as structural elements. Within the interior space of the legs are the vertical shafts required to place all
mechanical elements and services connecting to the upper level. Incorporated within the space between the legs is the vertica l
circulation of the house where a transparent glass elevator and staircase are situated, providing a direct connection between the lower
and the upper levels.

The main entrance to the house is located on the first floor. Within this space, the three concrete columns intersect the mai n roof,
proposing skylights and a double-high space. The view from the living room, following the grand staircase located in the entrance lobby,
is framed by two-curved in-situ cast concrete structures. These concrete structures serve both a structural purpose and the function
purpose creating of the divisions between main living room, dining room and indoor swimming pool. The major materials proposed for
this project are pre-cast and in-situ cast concrete, steel and glass. To give the interior spaces a sense of fluid continuity, these materials
are repeated throughout the whole villa. The general concept for the design of the villa responds to a strategy that extends the exterior
topography to the interior of the building, while its geometrical definition is derived from the surrounding environment of flowing terrain
levels that are stretched to generate the new landscape, proposing a continuous integration between interior and exterior spa ces.

D-VILLA
Caribbean Sea
2008–TBC




Render © Zaha Hadid Architect



PROGRAM:
Masterplan, Hotel and Marina plans for the Turks & Caicos Islands

CLIENT:
The O Property Collection, Vienna Austria

SIZE:
Max build height is approximately 32 ft

CONCEPT:
The design of D-Villa creates a certain tension and experience between the emerging continuous architectural landscape beneath and
the mysterious floating volume above. This contrast allows a spatial experience between private, public and semi-public spaces. The
elegancy of this design comes from its strong and radical features. The villa consists of three architectural elements: the elevated disc,
the architectural landscape and the open spaces that are created in-between.

The architectural landscape of each villa emerges from the natural landscape of the Cay to house private spaces (4 generous
bedrooms), semi-public spaces (storage and a kitchen), public spaces (living room, dining room). It offers a smooth transition from
private to public. The bedrooms on the ground floor have a direct access to the garden. The main entrance, living and dining, study and
hobby spaces are implied via an architectural landscape that differentiates through level or location. Each Villa has a completely
detached, floating volume with 2 master bedrooms offering maximum privacy with an expanding outdoor deck. With its cantilever form
and metallic roof finish, it creates required shading conditions onto the two storey high open space below. A field of delicate columns,
surrounded by two storey high windows, carry the roof. This spatial organization gives the sense of a floating object to its user.

SYMBIOTIC VILLA
Taipei, Taiwan
2008–TBC




Render © Zaha Hadid Architects



PROGRAM:
Villa

CLIENT:
De-Nian International Company, Inc.

SIZE:
700 m²

CONCEPT:
The villa is situated in the natural preservation of northern Taipei county, Au–Di. Within this environment of lush green vegetation, the
villa reflects the fluidity of form through the roofline. It gains its distinct character from the cones as geometric shapes sitting in the
landscape. This provides a harmonic tension between environment and built form, echoing the Chinese philosophy of Yin Yang.

These conic systems afford flexible open floor plans and panoramic visual connections with the landscape. Program and circulation is
unified though spaces surrounding the cones in both the ground and upper floor. Each cone provides interior and exterior spac es within
the villa. From the two main cones on the ground floor one supports vertical circulation while the other is used for meditation and
relaxation. This follows through on the top floor with three cuts forming the outside terraces and balconies. Not only does t he cone work
as a circulation device and distributer of program, but as a structural system as well. Spanning largely without columns the villa extends
the ground floor into the natural surroundings.

KUSNACHT VILLA
Zurich, Switzerland
2007–TBC




Render © Zaha Hadid Architects
PROGRAM:
Two exclusive villas

SIZE:
1000+ m² of living space, three floors, five levels

CONCEPT:
Two exclusive villas, designed as a single unit, with stunning views of snow-capped alpine peaks and the Lake of Zurich.

The ‘folding’ concept: turning interiors into exteriors Zaha Hadid’s signature is unmistakable: internal and external spaces are
organically integrated; the floor folds into a wall, the wall into a ceiling. The result is a three-dimensional network, with defined zones
that we perceive as enclosed spaces inside but which open up organically to the outside. Open galleries and generously sized areas
run through the building, providing numerous different vantage points from which to experience it on more than one level.

The elegance and character of the construction is underscored by seamless transitions from open to closed areas and other
architectural elements. Terraces and other features jut out irregularly and, together with the sloping front and back façades, amplify the
building’s sense of dynamism and motion. Despite its imposing proportions, the structure is light and transparent thanks to t he spacious
open and closed sections of the façade. Ceiling-to-floor windows provide magnificent views.

Level 1: the impressive entrance area
Each of the two villas has a floor area of well over 1000 square metres on five different levels, three of which are visible as separate
floors. Both villas are reached via a wide, two-lane access road leading to the lowest floor. The carport area is designed as an attractive
entrance hall, commensurate with the exclusiveness of the upper floors, and provides a fitting reception for g uests. It is also the
interface for the two villas. From the private foyer, each floor in the building can be reached by a separate lift or using t he staircase,
parts of which are concealed while others serve as spatial features.
Level 2: the extensive indoor pool landscape
Here we find a spacious pool and sauna area. The bottom of the water basin located above the ceiling is glazed, permitting li ght to
reflect both inward and outward. The remaining area can be used as desired and offers ample space for a gym or home cinema.
Level 3: the generously sized dining area and outdoor pool
The living area consists of a single, fluid space stretching from the open kitchen through the dining area and towards the te rrace in the
direction of the lake. The dining area and the living area – most of which is split on two levels – flow through the room-high windows to
the outside area. This takes the form of several terraces, which divide the outside into different zones. The focal points of the area are
the long outdoor pools.
Level 4: the flexible living area
At the rear of this area are two rooms, each with en suite bathroom and toilet. Extending before them are flexible living are as that offer
ample space for a music room, office, library or separate living room.
Level 5: the breathtaking views
The master bedrooms on the top floor are the most private area of all. From here and the rooftop terraces one has fabulous vi ews of
the lake and snow-covered alpine peaks. The dressing areas and master bathroom fold out of the bedroom and turn it into a single unit.

JESOLO MAGICA –
HOTEL & RETAIL CENTRE
Jesolo, Italy
2010–2014




Render © Zaha Hadid Architects



PROGRAM:
Hotel, Retail, Bar, Gymnasium, Restaurant, Offices, Congress and Wellness centre
CLIENT:
Home Group

AREA:
53000 m²

CONCEPT:
Jesolo is one of Italy’s most established seaside resorts and the design of Jesolo Magica makes full advantage of its locatio n near the
Venice Lagoon. The project aims to be the catalyst for reinvention and regeneration – giving the of the town of Jesolo an excellent
opportunity to further develop as a conference and holiday destination. The design creates a continuum of fluid space that instigates a
renewed sense of possibility. The disparate elements of the Jesolo Magica complex fit together to form a coherent field of buildings,
each one separate – but logically connected to the next in a continually changing ensemble. The volumes encompassing the retail
centre ‘open-up’ around a central space, like the petals of a flower. The hotel building forms the final ‘petal’, framing the views over t he
adjacent lagoon.

In addition to offices, retail spaces and restaurants, the Jesolo Magica project features a hotel with conference center, spa, nightclub
and outdoor spaces for events.

33–35 HOXTON SQUARE
London, UK
2006–TBC




Render © Zaha Hadid Architects
PROGRAM:
A mixed-use building with art gallery, offices and flats

CLIENT:
Kenny Schachter – ROVE Developments LLP

SIZE:
3000 m²

CONCEPT:
The proposal seeks to replace two existing buildings with a new 3000 m² structure that will house a two level gallery, commercial offices
and eight residential flats. The site is located within the South Shoreditch Conservation Area and will add an exciting new a ddition to
Hoxton Square’s eclectic character. Based on the idea of a prism, the design seeks to respond and manipulate daylight and views. The
form is composed of interwoven planes that respect the natural light access needs of the neighbours and controls light and vi ews
between the interior and exterior of the building. Sand blasted aluminium and clear glass will be the predominant materials.

The building will engage the public and does this by creating a relationship between the ground floor gallery unit and Hoxton Square.
The frontage carves into the interior of the gallery, spatially connecting the ground floor, basement, lower front area and upper front
area. The balustrade around the front area will also serve as seating, an element that will penetrate into the building itsel f so that the
public is invited into the building with this amenity.

SPITTELAU VIADUCTS HOUSING PROJECT

PROGRAM:
Housing, restaurants, bars, offices

CLIENT:
SEG Stadterneuerungs- und Eigentumswohnungsgesellschaft m.b.H.
SEG Gasometer, Guglgasse 6
A-1110 Vienna, Austria

AREA:
4000 m²

CONCEPT:
A series of apartments, offices and artist’s studios weave like a ribbon through, around and over the arched bays of the viad uct,
designed by Otto Wagner. The viaduct itself is a protected structure, and may not be interfered with. The three -part structure playfully
interacts with the viaduct, generating a multitude of different outdoor and indoor spatial relationships. The perception of t hese is
intensified by the response of the architectural language to the different speeds of the infrastructural element s. Public outdoor spaces
are enlivened via the infill of bars and restaurants under the arches of the viaduct. The related service zone flows through the remaining
openings of the viaduct and melts into the banks of the canal, creating a lively platform for public life. The rooftops are planned as
private retreats and add to the visual activity along the canal. An additional challenge is posed to the project, as the prog ram consists
mainly of social housing, though studios and offices are mixed in. Later, the project should be connected to the University of Business
and Northern Train Station via a pedestrian and cycle bridge.

CALIFORNIA RESIDENCE
California, USA
2003–TBC




Render © Zaha Hadid Architects



PROGRAM:
Private Residence

SIZE:
Floor area: 12880 ft²
Site area: 20091 ft²

CONCEPT:
The brief called for a single family house located at the top of a residential area overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A contained synthetic
new topography is imposed over the existing site in order to shelter the structure from the adjacent houses. A perimeter fence contains
the dynamic roof span where private and family spaces are clustered emphasizing the ocean view. The structural geometry respo nds to
this internal dynamic by a polar distortion in plan and section. This enables the incorporation of all structural elements into one
seamless skin with unimpeded ocean views and clear access to the forecourt and the interior landscape.

Mainly following a parallel axis from the distant shoreline, the main areas of the house are distributed linearly along a porous gallery.
Vertical ramps and connections spill into this linear space opening multiple interior readings and most importantly, t hey allow for a
relative flexibility in regards to programmed activities. The domestic in this case, is married to an open loft interior where traditional
notions of family life are injected with a new dynamism that responds to the particularity of the site and emphasizes a light materiality in
regards to the structure. This same dynamic character is applied to the main façades where structure is treated as tissue, expanding
and contracting depending on use and environmental criteria. The materials are wrapped unto the roof, opening a habitable depression
that serves as a second elevated terrace. A double landscape datum sandwiches the architectural object that restricts the ove rall
geometry to limited variation in height. This single volume contracts with the neighbouring structures, critical of typological notions
common in most American suburbs.

IBA HOUSING
Berlin, Germany
1986–1993
Photography © Christian Richters



PROGRAM:
Housing and commercial

CLIENT:
Degewo AG

AREA:
2500 m² (long block: 3 floors; tower: 8 floors)

CONCEPT:
Right from the beginning we had to confront two fundamental issues: the IBA strategy of infill and repair, and the tight buil ding
regulations for social housing, which contradict modern open-pan layouts. In addition to these constraints were the surrounding
buildings, which represented a wide range of different types and periods, so despite guidelines stipulating that new developm ents in the
area must contain an average of five storeys, a seamless insertion into this erratic context would have been virtually impossible.

We therefore interpreted the five-storey planning restriction by creating a long three-storey block that terminated in an eight-storey
tower at the corner. The longer block’s lower floors contain commercial premises with standardised dwellings above; on top is a roof
garden with a children’s playground. The sculpted tower, clad in anodized sheet metal, contains three wedge -shaped lofts on each
floor.

my exploration at 59 Eaton Place. The ensembles include our Bitar furniture, which created a dynamic space of their own, rath er than
acting as sculptural objects in a neutral container. Pivoting, sliding and swivelling, a storage wall further animated the space with the
actual physical movements of its doors and cabinets.

59 EATON PLACE
London, UK
1981–1982
Painting © Zaha Hadid Architects



PROGRAM:
Private residence

CONCEPT:
An explosion at the Italian Consulate at 38 Eaton Place provided the main inspiration for the renovation of an elegant turn -of-the-
century town house on a sterile white-washed street in Belgravia. The apartment is contained on three floors, which were inverted
conceptually as three vertical zones. The intervention was intended to provide a certain newness, which was achieved by intro ducing
materials such as silk and stone on the ground and top floors, as well as by inserting a new staircase in the lobby and dining-room area
to open the public domain towards the upper parts.

PROGRAM:
New residence and state function room for the Irish Prime Minister

CONCEPT:
For this project, a new residence and state function room for the Irish Prime Minister, the objective was to create a weightl essness,
freedom from the stress of public life. Both buildings, though connected by a road and walkway, needed to retain their privacy. placed
within the existing walled garden, the new guest-house is screened from the prime minister’s residence by the main reception rooms.
The guest-house rooms are located around it’s perimeter, apart from the reception block and m aster suite, which ‘float’ over the garden.

MALEVICH’S TEKTONIC
London, UK
1976–1977
Painting © Zaha Hadid Architects



PROGRAM:
Painting

CONCEPT:
For Zaha’s graduation project from the AA, she wanted to explore the ‘mutation’ factor for the program requirements of a hotel on the
Hungerford Bridge over the Thames. The horizontal tektonik conforms to and makes use of the apparently random composition of
Suprematist forms to meet the demands of the programme and the site

The bridge links the nineteenth century side of the river with the South Bank, which is dominated by the Brutalist forms to m eet the
demands of the programme and the site. The structure’s fourteen levels systematically adhere to the tektonik, turning all conceivable
constraints into new possibilities for space.

The project has particular resonance with her later projects: first, in the Great Utopia show at the Guggenheim, in which she was able to
realize some of these tektoniks in concrete form, and second, in the Habitable Bridge project, which considered the possibili ties of a
mixed-use development over the Thames.
