Hughes Umbanhowar Architects
Hughes Umbanhowar Architects has completed the Ski House H2o in Hobe Sound, Florida. The owners are very fond of water sport, namely water-skiing. That's why, they purchased agricultural land and modified an existing artificial lake to be used for water skiing/slalom course racing. The construction consists of three parts: public area, guest zone and master bedroom. he roof design also provides shade to the lakeside terrace adjacent to the lap pool, while simultaneously capturing and directing the water-cooled breezes through the upper transom windows of the living space. To minimize costs, the architects used simple materials, such as SIP panels, concrete floor, Stucco over insulated concrete form blocks, board form concrete wall finish, aluminum clad windows. The house also features passive conditioning and rain water collection systems.

What can be better than contemporary white villa on the ocean shore? Beach Road Residence 2 is fresh and amazing project from architectural agency Hughes Umbanhowar Architects. This building is located in Jupiter Island, Florida. White facade of the building makes a striking contrast with the color spectrum of the beach. This house is conveniently located between the coastline and the road that runs along northern border of the island and occupies an area of 3600 square feet. Interiors were also designed in white color and you can find there interesting accessories like bright glass baubles or thematic paintings. The residence can be an ideal shelter and elegant island villa at the same time. It's like a ship that is always ready to sail.
