A lavish volume on the work of architects Scott Hughes and John Umbanhowar’s influential firm huum architects, unveils 21 of the architects’ striking, angular private residences, commercial spaces, and public buildings. Each project pairs sophisticated exteriors with inviting interior spaces that champion simplicity, comfort, and warmth. This beautiful monograph is the first book to document the work of this innovative, awarding winning bi-coastal practice. Since its creation in 2000 the firm, with offices in Venice California and Hobe Sound Florida, has continued to push its sophisticated modernism into new territories. Works covered included Beach Road 2 (2002) on Jupiter Island, The Pine School in Hobe Sound, Florida (2005) and The Big Timber Residence in Montana (2013). Projects in progress, such as the Oblivious Office Building (2017), the Stone Residence (2017) and the Umbrian Tasting Room (2018) will also be featured.
