A holiday home surrounded by Icelandic nature.

A holiday home surrounded by Icelandic nature.

Reykjavik’s architectural studio, Gláma Kím, designed this magnificent house immersed in the Icelandic countryside. The house overlooks the rugged coastline of a lake giving a unique view. The layout of the building’s interior and exterior spaces has been designed in direct response to the surrounding setting and is designed to optimize the entry of light.

The property consists of three rectangular blocks positioned around an outdoor space facing south, with a cedar-clad roof connecting the various interior spaces. The central volume contains a kitchen and a living room that opens onto the covered terrace. This concrete structure incorporates large glazed surfaces on both sides. At the two ends of the central volume there are two cedar wings that contain the bedrooms and the guest rooms.

The materials used are simple throughout the project: cement, wood and glass have been used for most surfaces. The materials are also used to delimit the various functional areas, as well as to connect the internal and external spaces.
