Dramatic Modern Masterpiece

A glass terrace wraps around the home, offering views of the water.

When architect David Zacharko conceived his initial concept for this waterfront holiday home with his partner David Yustin, he drew on his travels to California, Hawaii and Southeast Asia. "In those places, walls don't exist between the outside and inside," he explains. They don't seem to exist in this home, either — a breathtaking structure that seems to float on water or air, depending on where you stand.
