Nestled into gnarled scrub or exposed to the wind and surf, beach houses are about environmental extremes. When the suburbs are left behind, it's these extremes that excite the senses. Whether it's a simple timber shack or a sophisticated architectural statement, beach houses are about fantasy and escape. Beach houses not only provide a sharp contrast to city abodes, but also reflect the extreme sites where they are located.
