One Thousand Museum stands tall and proud in Florida, its striking, exoskeletal form punctuating the Miami skyline. It is the only residential skyscraper in the western hemisphere designed by the late Dame Zaha Hadid. The imposing structure bears her signature style, with its robust exterior, crystalline glass facade and fluid curves.

The prestigious residential tower is minutes from famed Miami destinations such as South Beach and the Brickell financial district. Its sculptural form reflects its internal organisation as it rises more than 60 storeys from the arrival podium to the amenity levels, the residential floors above, and finally to a dramatic double heighted amenity space at the crown.

The tower’s limited collection of museum-quality residences includes duplex townhouses, half-floor residences, full-floor penthouses, among other configurations. Our favourite is the single duplex penthouse for its east-to-west floor plans that make the most of the stunning vistas with multiple oversized terraces that wrap around the curved exoskeleton of the building. Overlooking the green landscape and contemporary architecture of Miami’s Museum Park, they offer breathtaking views of the Miami Biscayne Bay and Atlantic Ocean.

Interior designer Hernan Arriaga furnished a 4,500 sq ft residence on the 38th floor using products from Italian label Meridiani. Here, clean lines and warm textures of the brand’s collections complement the building’s curved architectural shape. In the living area, the Harold sofa is displayed in a large modular set, next to the Bongo and Ralf low tables and the Ludwig storage element with hexagonal shape.

In the dining room, the protagonist is the Plinto dining table, set in a light metal structure and plinth support, with a large round top of Calacatta gold marble and black metal. Around the table are the Kita chairs, with their slightly curved backrest and comfortable seat. The geometrical shape of the Timothy modular sofa in the family room perfectly matches the soft volumes of the cushions. Meanwhile, the Claud outdoor series made of iroko wood and the Bongo low tables with matte lacquer dominate the terrace.

The crown of the tower hosts the Aquatic Centre with an infinity pool. The iconic Zaha Hadid’s visionary design brings contemporary art into the personal sphere on the Sun & Swim Terrace. These sculptural extensions of the tower architecture create areas of light and shadow that move around organically shaped pools throughout the day.

With over 30,000 sq ft reserved for swimming, sunning, socialising, fitness and pampering for fewer than 100 residences, One Thousand Museum is indubitably paradise on Earth.
