designed by zaha hadid architects, with ODP architects working as the architect of record, one thousand museum will contain a total of 83 residences. the newly revealed drawings illustrate the initial steps of designing the property and the design process that the developers are now implementing on site. the new properties will be complemented with a wealth of luxury facilities, such as an aquatic center and a private helipad.

the project takes its name from its location opposite museum park, and offers views across biscayne bay towards miami beach. prices for each unit start at $6 million USD for a 4,600 square foot residence, while all homes feature multiple oversized balconies. conceived as ‘a continuous piece of contemporary sculpture’, one thousand museum is set to top out later this year, before completing in late 2018. see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.
