Renderings of Zaha Hadid‘s One Thousand Museum Tower in downtown Miami, Florida were recently released and reveal plans for a 60-story luxury condo building with purported “daring design”.
The condo tower, which will be the first Zaha Hadid-designed skyscraper to grace the skyline of the Western Hemisphere, will have a concrete exo-skeleton that will hide the distinguishable features of the apartments.
“I really love Miami, but I don’t think the architecture matches the city,” Hadid told the Wall Street Journal earlier this year. “It’s a bit too commercial. We wanted to avoid that generic, modernist typology,” she added.
“We were interested in the idea of the tall building, and how it lands on the ground, how the structure is manifested.”
The colour scheme is largely neutral with areas of accent to bring out points of interest. The structure and material palette is accentuated through concealed lighting that will illuminate and bring the surfaces to life.
Community amenities throughout the building also include a helipad, a deck with multiple pools and cabanas, rooftop event spaces, a cigar lounge, sun decks and billiards rooms, a fitness centre and a screen room.
Prices for the luxury apartments are expected to start at $4 million for a half-floor unit, rising to between $30 and $50 million for a duplex penthouse unit.
