Hughes Umbanhowar Architects designed the Jupiter Island Beach House to capture the picturesque oceanscape within a clean, sensible living space – and the result is fantastic!
The strong white design is softened by tones borrowed from the rugged beach and endless sky, using aluminum details to create a sharp contemporary focus. Sandy Eames office chairs are used around the dining table effortlessly coordinated with the sprawling cabinetry of the kitchen. The lounge is wrapped in a spectacular outdoor view, furnished with plush Le Corbusier armchairs and enlivened by a thoughtfully placed surfboard – what a fun touch!
The spacious patio boasts one of the most intriguing features of all – an underwater skylight at the bottom of the pool. This unexpected “window” sends radiant shards of spectral brilliance into the white interior of the kitchen below.
The Jupiter Island Beach House is understated, uncluttered, and undeniably inviting.
