New Nordic Houses
Overflowing with stunning photography, this collection discovers the best contemporary houses across Scandinavia’s most beautiful and remote locations, designed by both emerging and established architects. In a climate with dramatic shifts in temperature and light, the homes of Nordic countries respond to ever-changing and breathtaking environments with an intrinsic sense of warmth. Nordic architects today are as much informed by vernacular traditions and natural materials as their forebears, but the most recent generation of practitioners reflects a new appetite for spatial exploration and changing lifestyles. Divided into four chapters―rural cabins, coastal retreats, town houses, and country homes―New Nordic Houses surveys Scandinavia’s finest and most innovative houses, featuring work by a broad spectrum of leading architects. This unique glimpse inside Scandinavia’s new generation of twenty-first-century homes will be an endlessly rich resource for anyone with a passion for home and modern design.
