Zaha Hadid Architects' One Thousand Museum residential tower has started to take shape in Miami skyline, as the tower's new visuals are revealed showing details from amenity spaces.

Also known as 1000 Museum, the newly-released images show that the 62-storey residential tower has reached its full height at 210 meters high. Developed in collaboration with ODP Architects as the local architect of record, the One Thousand Museum is the first and final residential tower she draw in Western region.

The new renderings present detailed views to amenity spaces and also provides an overlook to the exterior skin of the tower which is elegantly wrapped by "an exoskeleton" structuring the perimeter of the tower in a web of flowing lines.

The tower, located on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami, opposite Museum Park, with views across Biscayne Bay to Miami Beach, will include  83 super luxury units (including duplex townhomes, half-floor residences, full-floor penthouses, and a single duplex penthouse), as well as a sky lounge, a double-height aquatic center with indoor pool, the lifestyle center and spa,which will overlook the tower’s sun and swim terrace level.

Following a particular structure at the perimeter, the interior plans are almost designed column free to allow maximum variation in floor plans. 

"The moving, curving lines of the exoskeleton mean that each succeeding floor plan is slightly different from the past. On the lower plans terraces occupy the corners; on the upper floors, the terraces are tucked in from the edges," said ZHA in its project brief.

A duplex penthouse is situated on the last two residential floors. The final floor will include an aquatic centre, leisure area, and event space. A commercial area will be placed at the base, along with several stories of parking. At grade, the tower is ringed by pools and gardens.

Conceived as the crown of One Thousand Museum, the double-height Aquatic Center offers an innovative infinity-edge indoor pool and a sunbathing terrace overlooking the Miami skyline and the Atlantic Ocean. Zaha Hadid Architects' water drop pattern creates a sculptural quality of arched interior walls.
