A house built near water is unquestionably appealing. Locating a home close to a water source, be it a river, the sea or a lake, bestows upon it certain well-defined characteristics and helps to establish a close dialogue between its architectural design and the natural environment in which it sits. In this well-illustrated book you will find many examples of homes that have been designed around water, in diverse locations around the world. Notable in their own right for their attractive designs, the homes showcased in this book are also fine examples of the ways in which architecture can adapt to the beauty and challenges that come with building in a waterside environment.
