Superstructure is nearing topping out at JDS Development Group’s 14 story Monad Terrace residential condo complex in Miami’s South Beach. Designed by Pritzker Prize winner Jean Nouvel, the project features two buildings surrounding an infinity-edge lagoon and vertical climbing gardens of native Bougainvillea and Passion Vines on the north and south facades. A honeycomb sawtooth façade will capture, diffuse, and reflect incoming light, framing views and providing privacy. When complete later this year, the complex will offer 59 residential units on the Biscayne Bay waterfront.
Architects: Ateliers Jean Nouvel with Kobi Karp Architecture; Developer: JDS Development Group; Program: Residential; Location: Miami Beach, Miami, Florida; Completion: Late 2019.
