Situated on the shores of glistening seas, oceans, and great lakes, the contemporary beach houses featured in this book are as dazzling as the coastal paradises they inhabit. International Beach Houses takes readers on a tour of twenty fabulous houses located around the world, including Spain, Portugal, France, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, Japan, and South Africa. Included here are views, interiors, and floor plans of the best in modern coastline architecture from Tadao Ando, Shigeru Ban, Steven Harris, and Barclay & Crousse, among others. Each house represents a unique response to the challenges of the local terrain and culture, but all are unified by the spirit of luxury and leisure.
