Project Description

Builder's Choice and Custom Home Awards Finalist

To create a serene family sanctuary that harmoniously connects with the surrounding natural environment by combining sustainable, eco-friendly materials and energy efficient technologies with minimalist architectural design.

The house is located in a beautiful rural town of Iceland, a low-developed region committed to the preservation of its beautiful natural scenery and resources.

The design intent embodies Iceland's respect for the environment; this is our heritage--our national ethos. It implements mnmMOD, a modular building system that brings the economy and waste-reduction of pre-fab to the elegance and infinite possibility of custom design.

The home is a series of linked cubes serving program. Popping forward from a simple horizontal line is the home's largest form, a living room, which opens onto the horizon and set between entry and kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms are tucked on the other side of the horizontal line that divides public/private space on the ground floor.
