The "Where Architects Stay"-Series heads towards the Water: Stylish vacation accommodations in the Baltic Sea region where architects would stay themselves when traveling.
The Baltic Sea has gained rapidly in importance as a travel destination in recent years. More and more people appreciate the diversity found among urban designer hubs, sleepy and cozy villages, and ever-changing coastal strips. The new volume in the series on design retreats shows destinations away from mass tourism with a focus around the Great Belt.
Both an architectural and a travel guide, this volume offers inspiration and promises to fulfill the longing for peace, solitude and variety – for holidays spent at a farmstead on the dyke, above the sea on a crane, or in a fancy loft in Copenhagen. The common denominators among all accommodations presented here are a convincing design and a special location by the Baltic Sea.
