Renowned French architect Jean Nouvel is embarking on his first project in Miami, Monad Terrace. Alongside development firm JDS, a budget of $62.5 million USD has been secured for construction on the West Avenue, South Beach structure.

Monad Terrace, designed by Nouvel in collaboration with Miami's Kobi Karp, will incorporate a number of climate resilience features, as it also accounts for the first building in Miami Beach to be built above West Avenue's new height at 11.5 feet. This in turn means that all interior spaces and the garage entrance are positioned above the flood plain. The parking lot will also be reinforced to withstand flooding.

The structure boasts 59 waterfront residences, including four penthouses, each shaded by high-tech screens, while natural gardens provide additional shelter. Both sunlight and the reflection of the neighborhing water allow natural light to enter each home, ultimately awarding a sense of oneness with the Biscayne Bay.

Monad Terrace houses anywhere from two to five-bedroom residences, with amenities including an in-house concierge, a sun deck with a 116-foot swimming pool and hot tub overlooking the Biscayne Bay, valet parking, a café and juice bar, a wellness center, and a bicycle and water sports storage room.

The project is scheduled to go vertical in March 2018, while completion is estimated for third quarter 2019.

Recently we saw Jean Nouvel design a 1,050-foot-high condo tower above the Museum of Modern Art.
