A captivating book that features the homes of surfers from all over the world.
Following the footsteps of the first volume in the series, Surf Shacks Vol. 2, A New Wave of Coastal Living by Matt Titone introduces readers to another set of surfers’ homes. Published by gestalten, this fascinating book is a must-have for both surfing fans and design lovers. The eclectic blend of dwellings offers a glimpse into the homes of surfers from all over the world. The tome features photos and illustrations as well as anecdotes and more intimate conversations. Among the 288 pages, readers can see a wide range of interiors and living spaces and shacks that are as creatively designed as they are laid-back and cozy.
The “surf shack” classification doesn’t refer only to Hawaiian huts or small cabins; it also includes compact city apartments and off-grid dwellings. One example showcases the ingenious conversion of an old bus, while another presents the sustainable transformation of a shipping container into an off-grid home. The interiors are just as eclectic and often reveal artistic habits, from a painter’s studio to sculptural wall decorations. In the book, readers can also get a glimpse of a Hawaiian tree house, the mountain cabin of Gentemstick founder Taro Tamai, or a charming home nestled in a woodland. Launched in August 2020, Surf Shacks Vol. 2, A New Wave of Coastal Living features 288 pages and costs $60 in the publisher’s online store. Photographs© Matt Titone, gestalten.
