Monad Terrace is French architect Jean Nouvel‘s first residential project in Florida. The building raises over 11 feet above the sea level holding 14 stories. It will be located around a stunning glittering lagoon in the city’s South Beach, which is home to a swathe of Art Deco buildings, elite shopping and entertainment and sparkling white-sand beaches. Jean Nouvel will include 59 waterfront residences are spilt between two buildings arranged around an outdoor space overlooking Biscayne Bay and they perfectly capture the play of daylight and water throughout. Residents will have access to amenities like a 116-foot (35-meter) swimming pool and hot tub overlooking Biscayne Bay, a cafe and juice bar, and storage for bicycles and water sports equipment.
Bayfront monad Terrace marks Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel’s debut in South Florida. Miami’s Monad Terrace from architect Jean Nouvel marries water, light and spare geometry to create a home bathed in tranquility.
Simon Koster and Michael Stern of JDS Development Group invited architect Jean Nouvel to create a visionary residential building — Monad Terrace — on the lagoon in Miami Beach. “With him, no two buildings are ever the same; Jean inspects the canvas before applying anything to it. We believe that such a collaborative process is key to sustainable design around the world,” says Koster
Monad Terrace will be located at the neighborhood of South Beach Bay, minutes from the organic beauty and cultural attractions of Miami Beach. The bay side of South Beach provides a relaxed and tranquil setting that other neighborhoods envy—a thoughtful pedestrian-friendly community offering an eminently civilized, healthy way of life. An eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, wellness boutiques, and recreational activities are within minutes of Monad Terrace.
Each residence at Monad Terrace is designed for seamless indoor-outdoor living, with broad and deep terraces going far beyond the conventional balcony to almost double the living space of many residences. Whether used for dining al fresco, sunbathing, or easy access to multiple interior rooms, the terraces’ spectacular views of the bay and/or South Beach make them a perfect outdoor oasis.
New York developer Michael Stern is making his first entry into Miami Beach. Stern’s JDS Development is officially launching sales for Monad Terrace, a 59-unit luxury condo building designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel. It’s slated to be delivered in two years.
