One Thousand Museum by ZHA completes in Miami
Zaha Hadid Architects’ debut residential tower in the USA, the glamorous and organic One Thousand Museum in downtown Miami, has just been completed, featuring a range of amenities, as well as bespoke landscaping by specialist Enzo Enea
Compared to most building and construction that tends to occur at the speed of light these days, it’s been a relatively lengthy road for Zaha Hadid’s 1000 Museum residential tower in Miami, which was finally completed at the end of last year. Since the ambitious and complex design was unveiled in 2014, with construction beginning in 2015, the building has become a symbol for the swift evolution of Miami – from a beachy, Art Deco enclave to one of the most colourful and cosmopolitan luxury capitals of the world.
In the developers’ Louis Birdman, Gilberto Bomeny, Gregg Covin, Todd Glaser and Kevin Venger’s hands, One Thousand Museum – Hadid’s final undertaking before her passing – is an impressive 62-storey tower that has already become an architectural icon in downtown Miami. From its complex exo-skeleton structure to an array of stunning interior details, including a voluminous spiral staircase in the fitness and wellness centre and a series of fluid filleted lines that articulate and animate the building’s main entrance, the final result does true justice to Hadid’s enduring legacy.
There’s not much lacking in the 84 units, which have been designed as half-floor, full-floor and duplex residences. Each boasting oversized terraces and East-West views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and the Miami skyline, the well-heeled units also come fitted with a bounty of custom-designed features ranging from walk-in closets by Poliform and kitchens and cabinetry by Gatto Cucine.
The residence’s selection of amenities is where the development truly exceeds expectations. From a private rooftop helipad, a bank-quality vault and safe deposit box in each unit, and an aquatic center with an indoor pool to a two-level fitness and wellness spa, a private event space known as the Sky Lounge with a daily menu by chef Mame Sow and a multimedia theatre for screenings, presentations and lectures, One Thousand Museum has definitely taken most of its residents’ needs into consideration.
Located directly in front of Museum Park and the Perez Art Museum Miami and just minutes away from Wynwood Arts District, Brickell Financial Centre and the Miami Design District, the residential tower has the best of Miami on its doorstep. §
