From the Mediterranean to the Pacific Ocean and the tropical idylls of Southeast Asia, this book takes an international trip to the world's most stunning waterside homes. Photographs of each house reveal its architecture, interior design and surroundings, while plans provide an additional layer of information. Dominic Bradbury tells the story of how the dwelling was sited to make the most of its location, how construction innovations were introduced, and how such solutions provide a comfortable space from which families can enjoy the great outdoors. Loosely grouped into three sections, all of these houses - created by leading international architects and designers - offer dazzling inspiration, wherever you are.
