Inside SCI-Arc


Top 15 Bodacious Houses around the World Lists Home by Alum Scott Hughes

A Florida house designed by Scott Hughes Architects, the firm of SCI-Arc board of trustees member and alum Scott Hughes (M.Arch2 '97), is featured in Fine Living Network's Top 15 Bodacious Homes around the World edition.

Beach Road 2 (shown below), a 3,600 square-feet residence located on Jupiter Island, features three materials – stone, aluminum and glass. Limestone encloses the sleeping area, aluminum the entertaining space, and glass the contemplative living space. The project team included SCI-Arc alum John Umbanhowar (M.Arch1 '98).

Beach Road 2, Scott Hughes Architects

Completed in 2004, the house embodies the same complexities and dichotomies that characterize Florida's Jupiter Island. At once modern and timeless, the house is both a quaint coastal cottage and a chic isle villa. The house affords direct access to the water, reinforcing the spontaneity of island living.
