Houses by the Shore by Oscar Riera Ojeda & Byron Hawes


Highlighting 35 spectacular recently completed houses, selected for beauty and variety across the globe, Houses by the Shore | At Home With The Water: River, Lake, Sea features homes that demonstrate the extraordinarily diverse ways that today's leading architects and interior designers build and design homes on the water and new approaches homeowners are taking to life on the shore.

A range of projects encompassing myriad geographic and cultural inspirations show some of the world's most inviting residences, built in stone and glass, in wood and steel and concrete. The houses vary in size and style, though all within the realm of the modern, from open plan homes that include terraces and rooms that flow from indoors to out, to spaces flooded with light and views.
