One Museum Place Residential Tower (2006)


One Museum Place Residential Tower, Atlanta, GA (2006)
Invited Competition

One Museum Plaza (OMP) is located in the midst of a thriving Midtown along Peachtree Street, the coveted neighborhood of Ansley Park, and a recently energized arts district with the High Museum as its anchor. OMP further defines and activates this zone as a larger public space. The 16 story residential and mixed-use tower has multiple fronts that work like extended arms. The units facing Peachtree Street overlook a panoramic vista of the entire arts complex and grounds, while the units to the east oversee Ansley Park and the lush canopy of trees all the way to Piedmont Park. Each floor plate is designed for maximum planning versatility, natural light, and broad views. The combination of different unit types per floor adds interest to the building's elevations through varying degrees of opacity and transparency. Units facing west will have additional protective screens to mitigate glare and heat. The ground floor is comprised of a corner cafe, a restaurant, retail and an alternate gallery for the High Museum. By asserting its architectural value to the whole, OMP aspires to be a vital component of this cultural enterprise and a memorable place to live.
