Full description for Beach Houses
This book visits some of the beach houses around the Australian continent and New Zealand. While many of these homes go well beyond the humble shack in terms of design, they display a rawness and sense of adventure that is indicative of both cultures. Whether the beach house is camouflaged by coastal bushland, or cuts a monumental swathe above the shoreline, the sites prove far more difficult than those of the suburban street. Nevertheless, the onstraints are challenged head on, creating adventurous architecture in the process. The houses featured in this book are as diverse as the architets and climates that surround both of these countries. Some of the many architects included in this book are: Glenn Murcutt, Harry Siedler, Pete Bossley, Architectus, Craig Graig Moller, McBride Charles Ryan Architects, Brit Andersen, McGauran Soon Architects, Lindsay Clare and Cox Richardson.
