One Thousand Museum, the first residential skyscraper designed by Zaha Hadid Architects in the USA, completed in Miami
20 February 2020
The complex with the poetic name One Thousand Museum is located in the lower part of Miami, directly opposite Museum Park and the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and became the first residential project of Zaha Hadid Archites in the United States and the last brainchild of Zaha Hadid, on which she worked before her sudden death in 2016.
Its complexity and ambitiousness largely caused the implementation to take quite a long time: about six years have passed since its launch in 2014. Over the years, the 62-story, organic ZHA skyscraper has become a kind of architectural symbol of the city and a clear testament to the rapid evolution of Miami from a beach resort to one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan metropolitan areas in the world.
The architecture and interior design of the tower fully correspond to Zaha's creative principles – from the concrete “exoskeleton” that wraps around the glass facades from the outside to the mass of original finds inside, including the monumental spiral staircase in the fitness center and the streamlined organic lines characteristic of the main entrance area.
The One Thousand Museum complex has 84 residential apartments, including duplexes. Each apartment has its own large terrace overlooking Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and Miami and is furnished with designer furniture from leading brands such as Poliform or Gatto Cucine.
Residents of the complex will have access to a variety of amenities – from a safe in each apartment to a private rooftop helipad and a two-story fitness and spa center with an indoor pool. There is also a Sky Lounge space for events, lectures and screenings with a daily menu from Chef Mame Sow and a cinema.
