Seaside Living: 50 Remarkable Houses features a breathtaking, hand-picked collection of innovative designs in contemporary residential beachside architecture, showcased with stunning full-colour photography. This book celebrates our connection to the seaside – whether as a summer playground, winter hideaway or permanent abode, there is nothing quite so relaxing as living by the water. Images Publishing has carefully selected projects that underscore and demonstrate the dramatic and coherent blend of beautiful architecturally designed houses and the spectacular range in ecology and topography of coastal environments. Among the projects in this book are stunning beach houses that range from peaceful retreats to edgy designer homes spanning the world over, including an extensive range from Europe, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Seaside Living explores how homes are designed to celebrate their enviable beachfront positions, allowing their inhabitants to form an ingenious bond with the natural landscape. Some houses are adapted from ramshackle retreats into modern glass and steel structures that frame the magnificent ocean views. Other residences reflect the architect’s vision of working with sustainable materials, promoting both beauty and longevity, opting for a material palette that relies on suitability from the harsh, corrosive salt spray environment and representation with the location – reminiscent of flotsam, rich but weathered.
