Another stunning collection of residential beach architecture awaits between the covers of Beach Houses Down Under - the requisite stunning ocean views, dunescapes, seaside flora, and salty air are almost palpable! Stephen Crafti, author of the previous two Beach Houses volumes, has again selected some superb architect-designed homes, both full-time residences and holiday homes, in a wide variety of beach locations. Architectural adaptations to the often harsh beachside environment are explained and illustrated, with gorgeous photos, plans and descriptive text. A must for the beach-lover's collection.
