21st Century Beach Houses by Andrew Hall

Beach houses are often the site of intensive design exploration. This book profiles over fifty beach houses from around the world, including work by Australian architects such as Chenchow Little, Architects Ink, Wolveridge Architects and Andrew Maynard Architects. The spectacular settings of each of the featured houses make for amazing photography and have clearly been central to the designs, which respond not only to views but, often, to steep or unusual sites. Plans are meticulously detailed and clear.
