The Mediterranean, often referred to as the origin of Western civilization, spans three continents and is a melting pot of multiculturalism. Its distinct waters, climate, landscape, and history have informed a way of life that was and is aspirational to so many people.
The Mediterranean home has been a site of innovation and experimentation for centuries. Blending indoor-outdoor living and bringing together traditional features with contemporary elements, these properties connect with their environments and the local culture.
From classical to rural styles and more grounded spaces that interweave form and function, The Mediterranean Home provides a window into the ongoing influence this technique has on architecture and design. Whether it be careful restorations of traditional homes, reinterpretations of the local vernacular, or exciting new contemporary spaces, this monograph celebrates the Mediterranean aesthetic and lifestyle. Through informative text and beautiful photography, it showcases some of the most interesting homes along the shores and how this style continues to inspire a sense of home and comfort around the globe.
