Bespoke beach house on Jupiter Island is a seaside escape

From The National: Nothing takes fuller advantage of its sweeping Atlantic Ocean views than this Jupiter Island home designed by Scott Hughes and John Umbanhowar of SH Arc, an architectural firm with offices across the US: in Arlington, Virginia; Venice, California; and Jupiter Island, Florida.

It’s the sturdiness of the structure, which was designed to withstand 225-kilometre-per-hour winds, that made it possible for the architects to situate the pool on a rooftop terrace, a realisation that came about after the design process was already underway. This level of discovery was, in part, due to the homeowners’ adventurous attitude. “They were open to all of our suggestions for making this a 21st-century beach house,” says Hughes. “They gave us a free hand to present what we really felt would be the right solutions after we got to know them.”

    here’s some info that should be disseminated:
    1. The building has some serious structural problems, some due to design and some due to execution of the design.
    2. It is considered an eyesore to most neighbors
