Description

At about the end of the 19th century the classic Faroese fisherman’s house was wood-built and tarred brown or black with white painted windows and boards. Still under a heavy grass roof and built on top of a new housing element: a basement of the local field stones, sometimes whitewashed. The Houses had lifted themselves up from the ground and now they stood as buildings in their own right, although they were kept together by common dimensions materials and colors. They now stand as iconic buildings that truly represent the unique character of the Faroe Islands.

Each cottage is handcrafted and comes with a title deed with a brief history of the building and certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
