Spotted from the Crow's Nest/ Beach House Tour: Jupiter Contemporary
The rooftop pool beach house is designed by Hughes Architects Umbanhowar. It is located on the coast north of Jupiter Island, Florida. This house has a modern style mixed with island cottage chalet chic.
The house is divided into three areas: bedroom, playroom, and space for contemplation. Each segment is light sensitive and has wonderful full views. The kitchen and dining room lend translucent and visual plays of the two floors. The rooftop swimming pool can be seen from above or below with the skylights. In the daytime, cool blue water almost flows into the living room through skylights built into the bottom of the pond. Dynamic interaction of light and shadow invigorates the space below. This gives the house the "cool factor".
