Summary

A home on the magnificent Pacific coast can be a wondrous place, indeed, but building against the ever-changing sea presents unique architectural and design challenges.Pacific Houses presents over twenty homes from across the Pacific rim -- from California to Mexico to Australia to Japan and back again -- each engaged in fascinating dialog with their waterfront locale. Combining seascapes with new trends in home building and ornamentation, these exquisite homes reflect remarkable collaboration between architect, landscaper, and homeowner, and bring together dozens of delightful examples of how to enjoy life on ocean's edge.
