Casa Mediterranea: Spectacular Houses and Glorious Gardens by the Sea
The Mediterranean, with its sun-drenched landscape and turquoise waters, attracts visitors from all over the world. This new book showcases a selection of some of the most beautiful houses to be found around the Mediterranean Sea, captured by the lens of the renowned architecture photographer Massimo Listri.
These houses provide material for dreaming as well as a concrete source of inspiration. They range from a traditional, terra-cotta-roofed home with a big welcoming kitchen, a courtyard, and colorful tiles and mosaics to a cutting-edge contemporary design inspired by the forms and tonalities of the region.
Casa Mediterranea will leave the reader yearning for his or her own restful and colorful seaside getaway somewhere in Italy, Spain, France, Greece, or Morocco. But there are also plenty of ideas on how to re-create that same Mediterranean atmosphere wherever one may be.
