A House on the Water: Inspiration for Living at the Water's Edge (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This is the ultimate inspirational design book for the dream holiday home. A House on the Water blends practical advice with spectacular original photography which will be sure to inspire and inform anyone who already lives at the water's edge or simply dreams of it. Living in a waterside house is an almost universal desire. We are naturally drawn to the water - both for recreation and relaxation - and sites on the water sell quickly. But building a house on the water is full of design and construction challenges. * New England architect Robert Knight has distilled his many years of experience designing houses on the water into six key design themes: fitting in with the site; looking out, and looking in; living outside & living inside; balancing the approach by land and by water; responding to the site on the exterior; responding to the site on the interior; * 25 homes featured in Houses on the Water are houses that respect and enhance their place on the water, that fit in with the vernacular architecture, and are built to withstand the conditions specific to the site.
