Fortune International has released images of a 57-story, Herzog and de Meuron-designed residential tower in Miami. With interiors by Parisian firm PYR and landscape by Raymond Jungles, the Jade Signature promises to bring high design to Sunny Isles, Florida. Described as “contemporary houses in the sky,” units will feature ample outdoor terrace space and large windows to frame views of the horizon. Six Sky Villas feature double height living areas and the two Signature penthouses each boast 360-degree views and a large terrace pool.

Christine Binswanger, Senior Partner with Herzog & de Meuron, said “We created deep terraces and living rooms that have simultaneous views to the ocean in the east and to the Intracoastal to the west. We designed common areas to be on the ground level, connected with the beach, just as they were originally conceived for the beachfront hotels that have drawn people to Miami since the early 20th Century.”

Binswanger describes the form of the building as “quiet,” saying, “In this tower, the details are making the architectural identity. Primary elements, such as cantilevering floor slabs together with walls projecting from inside-out, create a finely textured expression on the façade.”
