Houses by the Shore
Featuring projects from around the world built in the past five years by some of the most inspired architects working in the modern idiom, this up-to-date take on the dream of a home on the water will inspire homeowners, interior design and architecture lovers alike. Demonstrating the extraordinarily diverse ways that today's leading architects and designers interact with, and highlight, water-facing houses across the globe, this book is a paean to rooms with a view. A range of projects encompassing myriad geographic and cultural inspirations show some of the world's most beautiful residences, while examining symbiotic interactions between nature and construction. Each house is documented comprehensively with detailed interior and exterior photography and plans, and placed into context through the lens of widely respected editor Oscar Riera Ojeda and descriptive texts written by design critic Byron Hawes, to give readers a privileged look at the best of shore-side residential architecture.
