Endless sun, sparkling sea, crystalline sky - these are the elements of the Mediterranean that offer its inhabitants a lifestyle that is the envy of the world and have delighted architects since antiquity. A fusion of interior style and architecture, of glorious natural landscapes and bold man-made forms, Mediterranean Modern presents twenty-five of the region's most covetable houses in a format that speaks directly to today's increasingly design-savvy house-dwellers. Including work by internationally established architects, such as Alberto Campo de Baeza and Alvaro Siza, and also houses by a number of the region's rising stars - revealing a wealth of cool ideas for hot climates.
