About this title

Synopsis:

Some of the world’s most beautiful houses grace the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Houses by the Sea is as colorful, creative, and inspiring as the homes themselves. The photography, by Rigoberto Moreno, is so vibrant and crisp that each page seems like a window onto these stunning homes and their lush surroundings.

Each section of the book highlights one of these unique homes and describes the architect’s particular challenges and constraints in building it, from unusual owner requests to difficult cliffside terrain. Many of the projects employed indigenous materials or traditional designs, and these are also described, along with some landscaping and interior design features.

About the Author:

Moreno is a photographer specializing in architecture and construction.

Mauricio Martinez is the editor of Houses of Los Cabos, Abracadabra: Mexican Toys, and the previous editions of Houses by the Sea, among other pictorial books.
