Iceland's landscape is made up of glacial river and volcanic mountains. The Langitangi Country House enhances that rugged terrain with a Brutalist facade. The summerhouse is made up of raw concrete blocks, forming two volumes under a single roof. Spread horizontally through the site, the structure sinks into the contours of the topography, integrating its rough exterior into the natural surroundings. Internally, a minimalist atmosphere dominates the living spaces complementing the nordic scenery. A combination of its linear layout and expansive glazing maximize views across the water and to the mountains in the distance.
