Top Projects, Top Trends
October 14, 2019
Zaha Hadid was one of the most distinguished architects of the 21st century. Having passed away in 2016, she never had the chance to see the final result of her One Thousand Museum project, which began in 2013 and is projected to be completed by the end of this year.
One Thousand Museum: A Lasting Legacy
On the 31 March 2016, the world unexpectedly lost Zara Hadid. A powerhouse who re-defined architecture for a whole generation, Hadid left a legacy that is, and will continue to be, an inspiration to everyone in the field. The design of this impressive Miami Beach residential high-rise, One Thousand Museum, was initiated by Zaha Hadid Architects in 2013, with Hadid at the helm. Her work was continued by her team of architects after she passed away.
More than 30,000 sqft of space is distributed between 83 beautifully designed condos and spacious common areas. Highlights include a spectacular spa, a gym and an outdoor rooftop pool. The high-rise also boasts a covered infinity pool with spectacular panoramic views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Miami skyline.
59 floors of the building are comprised of 5,000 to 10,000 sqft condos. The 60th and 61st floors house the aquatic centre and the sky lounge, making this Miami’s third tallest building. The design also stands out for its curved exoskeleton and its interior with hardly any columns.
The lounge in the upper floor of the building has arched interior walls. In addition to this event space with views of Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach, there is also a magnificent private dining room and a multimedia theatre for film screenings, conferences and presentations.
One Thousand Museum was also designed to offer Miami’s first private helipad in a residential high-rise. This grants residents the convenience to come and go securely.
Cosentino materials were used throughout the interiors. Silestone White Zeus and Iconic Black are standout features in the kitchen and bathrooms. The project is in conjunction with Stone Systems of Florida. The kitchens have extremely large islands with 4-inch thicknesses for a luxury touch. Each island was designed and fabricated locally.
