For those seeking a stylish stay in Miami Beach, the former high-rise home of late architect Zaha Hadid is up for lease at $37,000 a month.
Hadid, the first woman to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize, personally designed the futuristic-vibe condominium, which lies in the southeast corner of the building containing the W South Beach oceanfront hotel.
The double-unit residence features 1,905 square feet of whitewashed living spaces accented by metallic finishes. Curved walls separate a living room from a dining area, and walls of black-trimmed glass bring in ocean views. Two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sleek kitchen and a wraparound balcony complete the living space.
David Pulley of Douglas Elliman’s Sports & Entertainment Division holds the listing.
The condo traded hands earlier this year for $5.75 million, or nearly half of its original $10-million price tag.
Hadid lived in the residence while designing the One Thousand Museum, a 62-story Miami condominium wrapped in a curvy exoskeleton. Her other major works include the aquatic center for the 2012 London Olympics, the Riverside Museum in Glasgow and the Broad Art Museum in Michigan.
