Aas I am writing this post about Contemporary Architecture, I realize that most of the houses that I feature here, are actually situated close to the sea. I guess that this building style works best when implemented with free-standing structures in natural surroundings, preferably with water close by. Why would that be? Well, these houses tend to have those super large floor to ceiling windows.

And through those windows you will want to have a spectacular view, right?

I hope you will enjoy this little picking of Contemporary Architecture examples of houses situated in Chili, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Dominica Republic, Sweden and a very unique hotel in Patagonia, Argentina.
