One Thousand Museum is a 60+ stories ultra-luxury condominium tower overlooking Biscayne Bay. It consists of over 80 units – four townhouse units, 70 half floor units, eight full floor units and one double height Penthouse at the top of the tower. Once completed, One Thousand Museum will be one of the most spectacular residential developments in the world. Internationally acclaimed and Pritzker Prize winning architect, Zaha Hadid, has been commissioned to design the 62-story, architectural masterpiece. Our firm has been selected as Architect of Record to translate her vision.
The inherently, tall, slender volume offered an ideal starting point for tower studies. A sinuous, sculptural structural expression was chosen as a unifying signature feature, shadows created by recessing the façade create a back-drop to the prominent structure where the interplay of vertical structure and horizontal balcony establishes the tower’s rhythm.
The ground floor has nearly 6200 sf of double height leasable space for retail or F&B with BOH delivery areas and a feature drop off entrance for residents. Podium levels incorporate approximately 300 parking spaces with an amenity deck and mezzanine on the top podium level.
Balcony areas are a unique feature for the tower expression, as well as, the unit layout. In the lower zones, corner balconies are a defining feature offering extensive outdoor space that is “sculpted” out of the exoskeleton structure. Rising up the tower, balconies transition into East or west facing balconies as recesses push into the façade. On the uppermost levels where a unit occupies an entire floor, balconies on the east and west provide a deep, protected outdoor space.
Above the top of the tower amenity levels, a volume appears to be suspended from the tips of the exoskeleton. This volume serves multiple functions. From low, external views of the tower, it is a defining piece of the architecture. Within the amenity space, the angled volume creates a soaring interior ceiling. At the top of the tower where the most expensive one unit per floor condominiums are located, a split in the corner condition is clad in folded glass elements.
