Book Overview

Entrances and doors, bedrooms and bathrooms, dining rooms and sitting rooms, terraces and swimming pools are spaces used to put together a beach house. Good architecture pays attention to the modus. The beach invites to eat and sleep, bathe and play, to be and to dream in a special manner.

Beautiful & Lush

A beautifully photographed collection of dreamy paradise escape homes, as well as a great source of ideas for developing our own corners of the world. The paper and printing is high quality and vibrant.

Inspiring photos

We are considering a move to pacific Costa Rica (As the native ex-patriots call it "Hawaii for half the price") and this book is loaded with design ideas. In every way this book is a gem and I look and buy architectural design books quite frequently... this one blew me away. I often look at books on contemporary Mexican design as well as books with an Asian theme; Thai, Bali and Ibiza, Greece, in general homes with a coastal or tropical feel and with lots of mystery and sun. This book fulfils my requirements and without any waste. Some books will have a few great photos and alot of duds thrown in. Either photos that don't radiate much excitement or drama or are of mundane ho hum same same you have seen elsewhere and probably better. Or shots of mediocre furnishings ... This book firstly doesn't have one wasteful photo and it displays some of the great contemporary (Mexican) architects who you may want to design your next home... furthermore, it was wonderfuly edited so that you feel a great flow thoughout. You will also be impressed with some of the textiles and ideas for built in furniture. These homes have drama, mystery, and reflect a wonderful coexistence with the majesty of this beautiful coastal rocky terrain. They are homes which truly integrate into the surrounding nature with great respect for their environment rather then being ostentious monstrocities. These homes have a Wow factor as they are commanding but have subtle grace at the same time.
