A tour of more than twenty exceptional houses from this intriguing area of northern Europe

Overview

Extraordinary seascapes, a rigorous climate, a fascinating amalgamation of cultures, endless summer days and long winter nights – these are just some of the factors that have combined to determine the distinctive architecture and way of living that are the essence of Baltic style.

Baltic Homes features over twenty houses from this fascinating part of northernmost Europe, painting a sometimes nostalgic, sometimes resolutely modern picture of the area. It includes villas from the late nineteenth century, fishermen’s cottages, farms and manor houses and contemporary homes designed to fit their natural environment.

With over 260 colour photographs by distinguished photographer Sølvi dos Santos, this engrossing and seductive book is the perfect window onto a distinctive and beautiful way of life.
