A sumptuous survey of houses built with a strong connection to the oceans, lakes, rivers, and pools around them
Living on Water showcases the finest examples of residential architecture that have one thing in common - their special relationship to that most essential of elements: water. These homes have been designed with water as a fundamental key to their very essence - whether built with a water view, built on water itself, or built to be reflected in water - and the results are stunning. This is a global tour that provides endless inspiration.
