Oasis On The Beach: Herzog & De Meuron’s Jade Signature Embraces The Verdant Beauty Of Its Tropical Setting

Share this Post!

The allure of one of the most prized ultra-luxury residential high-rises in the world goes beyond its iconic, sculpted silhouette and dreamy art-clad interiors. For Jade Signature, Herzog & de Meuron’s architectural masterpiece in Sunny Isles Beach, the beauty of its structural design expands over a lush, oasis-like setting on the beach.

Here, where turquoise and cobalt-blue Caribbean waters break over an unspoiled stretch of sugar-soft sand, landscape architecture authority Raymond Jungles has created a verdant, Zen-like work-of-art.

When Jungles was tapped by the project’s award-winning developer, Fortune International Group, to transform the property into an opulent retreat, he exceeded every expectation.  The end-result was incomparable to any other area condominium.

Because Jade Signature’s parking garage was built underground -- creating a direct connection between the lobby-level, ground-floor amenities and the beach -- and due to its parallelogram footprint, which has allowed for infinitely more sunlight across the undulating terrain -- Jungles had the extraordinary ability to create a mesh of verdant gardens right at the surface (a rarity for most high-rises, which are often marked by towering concrete pedestals at their base).  

With a uniquely vast canvas to work from, Jungles’ subsequent creation was rooted, quite literally, in native flora and fauna -- directly inspired by the natural surrounding beauty of one of the globe’s most treasured coastlines.

Winding gardens -- rich with coastal dune vegetation, including thick-leafed Sea Grape, Buttonwood and Seven Year Apple specimens -- are complemented by canopies of swaying Coconut, Sabal and Cabbage palms. Natural grasses flank colorful thickets of indigenous wildflowers and encircle pockets of the beach, providing intimate opportunities for relaxation.  Jade Signature’s zero entry free-form swimming pool and lap pool, as well as the Jade Signature Beach Bar & Grill gourmet restaurant and secluded cabanas, are enveloped in vegetation, adding a veil of privacy and shade, while still framing unobstructed views of adjacent ocean waters. Adding to the sheer beauty of Jungles’ design is a showpiece at the tower’s entrance: A grand, 60+-foot tall Kapok tree, which provides sculptural punctuation to the condominium’s timeless landscape.
