AD100 interior designer Jean-Louis Deniot has left his sophisticated stamp on houses all over the world, from New Delhi to Bridgehampton. But for the interiors of his first condo building, the Elysee Residences in Miami, the Paris-based talent drew inspiration not only from the Arquitectonica-designed tower’s multitiered silhouette but also from the city’s glamorous midcentury heyday. “I watched the 1964 film Soy Cuba, read architecture books by Morris Lapidus, and went through hundreds of images of Dorothy Draper,” Deniot revealed in a recent statement. “I wanted the palette to reflect the exteriors and the views of the sky and water from the inside.”

All 100 of the 57-story building’s units will take advantage of its waterfront location and offer sweeping views of Biscayne Bay. (Prices range from $1.8 million to $10 million–plus.) Among the lavish features are two amenity levels: The seventh floor includes a 75-foot resort pool and fitness center, and the 30th offers a grand private dining room that can seat 30. Currently in the land-preparation phase, the glass tower is slated for completion in 2018, when it will officially be the Edgewater neighborhood’s tallest, at 649 feet. elyseemiamiom
