One Thousand Museum, the Zaha Hadid-designed skyscraper in Downtown Miami, has unveiled new interior renderings, including communal spaces designed by the architect. The 62-story tower, which began construction in December of 2014, will contain only 83 residences, consisting of a two-story duplex penthouse, four townhouses, eight full-floor residences, and 70 half-floor units. Overlooking the Pérez Art Museum by Herzog & deMeuron, the soon-to-be-completed Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science by Grimshaw Architects, and the American Airlines Arena by HOK & Arquitectonica, One Thousand Museum tilts the scales in luxury residences from a market historically centered on Miami Beach to Miami’s rapidly densifying Downtown.
The building’s exterior features a curvaceous, structural exoskeleton that keeps floorplans large and nearly column-free, and the geometry creates unique terrace spaces for each of the tower's residences. The communal spaces designed by Zaha Hadid, include the building’s lobby and a two-story Aquatic Center and Sky Lounge on the 61st floor. One Thousand Museum is one of the many projects that was started by Hadid, but after the architect's untimely passing in March, will be completed posthumously. One Thousand Museum is scheduled to open in late 2018.
