Perceived as the new shining star of Miami, this Zaha Hadid-designed tower is about to alter the international city’s skyline. Located in Florida’s southwestern city, the One Thousand Museum is the first residential skyscraper in the Western hemisphere.
Recently, more renderings of the One Thousand Museum have been revealed by Zaha Hadid Architects.
The recent shots show the penthouses, the gorgeous gymnasium, IMAX theatre, a swimming pool, and communal spaces all designed with cutting-edge luxury, splendor, and a touch of Zaha Hadid’s futuristic vision.
Reaching 210 meters (700 feet) in height, the residential tower consists of 62 stories, comprising 83 units, and is expected to become an iconic architectural gem for Miami. Connected to a couple of towers right in front of Museum Park in Downtown Miami, the residential condominium is covered by an “exoskeleton”; an external structural skin made of glass-fiber-reinforced concrete that wraps around the glass.
At the top of the One Thousand Museum tower, a large double-height lounge equipped with a pool overlooks breathtaking views of the Miami beach. The new renderings show a reflective metal ceiling with Zaha Hadid’s signature curves, installed above the pool to reflect the rippling water.
Although the late architect had constructed many mid-rise commercial buildings, she rarely designed towers. Offering spectacular views of the Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach, the One Thousand Museum sits in a strategic location only minutes away from South Beach and the Brickell financial district.
According to the One Thousand Museum official website, the developers state “In coming years, the immediate neighborhood will continue to transform and become even more compelling as a result of over $10 billion of investments in premier retail, hospitality, and entertainment developments nearby.”
Leading real estate developer Louis Birdman stated, “We’re now one step closer to revealing Zaha Hadid’s forward-thinking design.“
He added, “Even in its current state, the building already stands out as the most iconic architectural work on Miami’s skyline We’re excited to have developed something so unique and special for Miami.”
