Opulent homes with large balconies at Jade Signature designed by Herzog & de Meuron 


Fortune International has revealed the next chapter in its prestigious collection of Jade-appointed buildings with the Jade Signature on Sunny Isles Beach. The design team is led by Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, Parisian interior design firm PYR, and landscape designer Raymond Jungles. The 57-storey building features spacious homes, ranging from 1,400 to 10,000 sq ft.

"We've been waiting for the perfect time, location and talent to launch Jade Signature,” says Founder and President of Fortune International Edgardo Defortuna. “It was our mission to deliver something that the market has never experienced before in Miami, and I think this development reflects exactly that. Herzog & de Meuron never cease to create beautiful designs tailored to the surrounding environment, and with Fortune's reputation for knowing what buyers of this calibre desire, I think we have perfected the elements for an extraordinary oceanfront building.”

While Miami is known for its flash and flare, Herzog & de Meuron engaged a thoughtful process that subtly transforms preconceived notions of high-rise living. Unlike most luxury condo layouts, Jade Signature’s entrance and lobby are directly connected to its pool and the beach, establishing a unique and seamless connection between the common areas and stunning natural surroundings.

“The relation to place is integral,” says Christine Binswanger, Senior Partner with Herzog & de Meuron. “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."

To achieve that seamless flow through design on the ground floor, the parking has been designed to go underground. "This is something done across the rest of the world and beyond Miami to allow for a full connection to the land and environment of a property, and we wanted to make a commitment to bring that quality experience to the residents at Jade Signature," says Edgardo Defortuna. "Working with Herzog & de Meuron, we were able to achieve this idyllic design and allow for unobstructed views of lush landscape and direct access to walk to the beach."

These contemporary houses in the sky feature stunning oceanfront views with expansive terraces, making up an impressive 30% of living space. Windows, designed to frame the horizon, reinforce the connection between interior and exterior. “The overall form is quiet. 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,” says Binswanger.
