Nestled in the riverbank, the Langitangi Summerhouse adopts a rugged facade to marry with the Icelandic landscape. The home occupies a natural slope in the terrain. Concrete cladding and a gravel surface help the structure to become a part of its rocky plot. Internally, the interior is split into two spaces — the main house and a guest house. The cantilevered roof joins the two volumes, while also providing protection for an outdoor terrace. A linear layout runs parallel with the water's edge, allowing for full-height glazing to capture views of the adjacent shoreline and outlining mountains.
