And the wider expanse of the ocean, in whatever climate, seems to inspire generosity and ingenuity in design and construction. Your own ‘seaside’ villa has many connotations, most of which involve an architectural component. From cabins and beach-huts at popular resorts or pavilions hidden among the tropical foliage of some tropical island, from new ‘natural’ hotel developments. More information:
