Every month brings with it new architecture, and to commemorate the best houses posted online in May, we have another installment of Fresh Builds: The 25 Coolest Houses of May 2013. In celebration of summer, this list highlights a few beach houses that may inspire you to finally book that getaway, in addition to some genuinely cool and contemporary cribs from around the world. Enjoy and may your fantasies run free (perhaps along the beach of one of these houses).
