Architecture

From the Baltic through the balmy Mediterranean to the tropical shores of the South Pacific, people have always aspired to live by the sea. This book showcases over 30 exceptional houses from around the world in a variety of styles, from traditional wooden fishing huts to dazzling 21st-century creations. Whether looking out to the ocean, perched on a clifftop or nestled in a rocky hollow, each of these homes relates to its environment in a unique way, and each has its own special atmosphere reflecting the needs and lifestyles of its owners. As refreshing as an ocean breeze, this trip to the world's coasts will inspire and engage all readers who dream of living where the land meets the sea.
