    The Sunday Age – Home Style Magazine- November 2015

    Despite being land mammals, humans have always been drawn to the sea. As architectural photographer Russell Abraham points out in his introduction to this compendium of waterfront homes, these days about 80 per cent of the world’s population lives within 100 kilometres of an ocean. For architects, designing homes that sit by the sea is simultaneously a thrill and a challenge, offering the opportunity to be creative but also posing environmental limits. Fifty results from around the world that stood up to this task fill the pages of Seaside Living. There are designs ranging from the traditional to the innovative, from shores in Japan, the United States and Norway and those much closer to home.

    Seaside Living celebrates the human connection to, and desire for, the sea. Stunning full-colour photography fills the pages, showcasing an array of summer playgrounds, winter escapes and permanent residences located across the globe. The ocean’s ever-changing hues of blues and greens have an unmistakably calming effect, so it stands to reason why so many people want it in their daily lives. The architects responsible for these magnificent feats have pushed the boundaries on what is conceivable, using a mixture of traditional and modern techniques to inspire and motivate their peers.
