Bringing Swiss Excellence to the Tropics: Herzog & de Meuron in Miami

Winter has come to New York City, and while we love Knightsbridge Park’s headquarters city, we can be forgiven for channeling some warm beaches and sunny penthouses this month. Fortunately, the international team behind the singular Miami homes at Jade Signature has given us something special to think about on snowy days, with a new collection of penthouses atop the glassy waterfront tower. Come explore these immaculate sky palaces with us and picture yourself waking up to a warm breeze blowing off beautiful Biscayne Bay.

The penthouses at Jade Signature, like the tower itself, are being designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Swiss architecture partnership-turned-firm that has created visionary designs around the world. Best known for their work on the Tate Modern in London, Herzog & de Meuron brought their signature angular glass style to Miami for Jade Signature, the firm’s first waterfront residential project. Like their previous work on museums and stadiums, Jade Signature presents a striking exterior and inviting, sunlight-bathed interiors that embrace a sense of place through engagement with the external environment.

For the newest level of luxury residences in the tower, dubbed “the Signature Upper Penthouse and Sky Villas Collection,” Herzog & de Meuron worked with Parisian interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon (PYR) to create stunning expressions of the indoor-outdoor Miami lifestyle. The neutral color palette and sumptuous finishes create a backdrop for ocean views through massive windows and from spacious private terraces. The Signature Sky Villas each span two floors and feature Atlantic and Intracoastal views, while open interiors fill every inch with warm natural light, and subtle architectural details like curved columns give each space its own identity.

The collaboration between Herzog & de Meuron and PYR comes to a beautiful climax with Jade Signature’s Upper Penthouse, which spans the tower’s top two floors and features 12-foot ceilings, up to seven bathrooms, and a suite of entertainment and lounging spaces, including a private bar and gym. This one-of-a-kind sky villa overlooking Miami is crowned by a 360-degree terrace featuring an outdoor kitchen and private pool with sweeping Atlantic views. The designers created every room with natural light in mind, ensuring that the palatial home positively glows with sunlight.

Living in one of the penthouse homes at Jade Signature means waking up in a piece of architectural artwork every morning, thanks to the care that Herzog & de Meuron has put into every room and windowpane. And it’s our job (and joy) at Knightsbridge Park to put similar thought and artistry into the digital marketing of luxury buildings like Jade Signature. Contact us to learn about our services.
