Going with the flow: 8 contemporary riverside houses
Rivers, unlike most other natural water formations, stand as icons of time, history and journey within the built fabric of humanity. Deeply romantic by default, a river offers much more than breath-taking panoramic views, initiating a dialogue with its built and unbuilt surrounds. No surprise then that riverside designs surrender to the rich heritage and metaphor they present, imbibing its very essence into its vocabulary. Here is a portfolio of contemporary riverside houses, illustrating this rich exchange between man and nature.
