Project Description

One Museum Place is a collection of forty-four custom residences located at Atlanta’s premiere address, 1301 Peachtree Street, directly across from the High Museum of Art by Architects Richard Meier and Renzo Piano. Opposite, to the east, the homes face onto Ansley Park, an Olmstead planned residential neighborhood.

Project Mission: Raise the bar in luxury urban living in Atlanta unmatched in premier location and design.
Project Image: Compliment the masterworks of Meier and Piano at the High Museum.
These desires are met in a project of reciprocal scale, texture, and fortitude to the nearby museum. The architectural mass of buildings express individual homes with their generous outdoor rooms or lanais, while the rich material palette of the facades collect the individual homes into a cohesive community.

The forms of the two buildings produce a layered sequence beginning at Peachtree Street and carrying through a central courtyard of verdant landscape and rich multi-layered facades. A generous array of window types and exterior glazed doors offer prized city and park views, natural light and ventilation. The lanais speak to gracious veranda living, outdoor living rooms with grills, wet bars and generous space for furnishings. Each residence is custom designed by One Museum Place to meet the needs of each home owner.

One Museum Place provides ample individualized garage parking for homeowners but also connects directly to MARTA, Atlanta’s rapid transit system via a pleasant walk across the High Museum piazza.

The scope of the architect’s work included core and shell including lanais, garage, entry lobbies and site and landscape design.
