Jade Signature; Herzog and de Meuron




Herzog and de Meuron's has designed a elegant structure combined with both contemporary and modern elements.  The 57 story Jade Signature tower will rise in Sunny Isles, Florida.  Units will feature ample outdoor terrace space, spanning up to 25 feet, 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.




Deep terraces and living rooms were created to have simultaneous views to the ocean in the east, and to the Intercoastal to the west.  Common areas ares designed for the ground level, connected with the beach.  Primary elements such as cantilevering floor slabs together with walls projecting from inside-out, create a finely textured expression on the facade.
