Beach Houses of Australia and New Zealand

Front Cover
Images Publishing, 2000 - Architecture - 159 pages
"If there is one thing that symbolises the Australian way of life - it is leisure time in a weekend house, preferably near the sea. The houses that they build are moderate in size and cost to construct - their predomiant aim being to maximise a sense of freedom and ease of use in open spaces, both inside and out of the house. They are rarely sophisticated in taste, but rather put their emphasis on an emerging Australian unpretentious simplicity of style ... one can only marvel at the perserverance of the architects and their clients who produced the work in this book."--Jacket.
