This title features a stunning array of the most ambitious examples of residential design in the tropics. From a simple dwelling on a remote island to a luxurious holiday home set in a spectacular landscape - from Brazil to Florida, from New Zealand to Singapore - Tropical Houses brings together a collection of exotic environments designed by well-known architectural firms with interesting approaches by local architects.

The houses featured in this volume embrace the tropical lifestyle with open-air rooms, shady courtyards, sunny patios, and cool stucco walls. Exotic local materials and eco-conscious features are a seamless response to the settings of many of the featured houses.

Among the architects featured are SCDA, Studio Mumbai, Bernades + Jacobsen Arquitectura.
