Beach Houses Down Under is a new title in this internationally best-selling series that pays tribute to an outstanding collection of beachfront homes. Both modern and traditional, designed with the beachside lifestyle in mind, these homes are in locations that are often as spectacular as they are remote, as well as some which are located on more modest and easily accessible sites.
The tenth title by popular international architectural writer Stephen Crafti (author of Beach Houses 1 and Beach Houses 2, Making the Most of Small Spaces, H2O, and Designing for Success). The author introduces each project, examining both the client's instructions and presenting the architects' resultant beautiful house designs.
This book presents superb architecturally designed homes, both full-time residences and holiday homes. Architectural adaptations to the often-harsh beachside environment are explained and illustrated, with gorgeous photography, plans and descriptive text. Beach Houses Down Under is an attractive casebound volume and an invaluable addition for the beach lover's collection.
