Featuring stunning full color photography—50 beautiful architect-designed homes
Australians and New Zealanders are drawn to the coast. Whether it’s a permanent abode or a simple fibro shack, the sound of the surf and the feel of sand beneath one’s feet are perennially appealing. This latest beach house book by Stephen Crafti features 50 architect-designed homes along the coast. From the simple to the monumental, these homes leave a lasting impression.
While many of the homes featured in the book are lavishly appointed, others simply frame the spectacular views ahead.
