Holiday Home by Krads Architecture

Designed in 2020 by Krads Architecture, this lovely holiday home is situated in Þingvallavatn, Iceland.


The holiday home is carefully placed on a densely overgrown hill which is sloping north in the direction of the the great Lake Þingvallavatn in southwestern Iceland. On multiple levels, the otherworldly landscape has modelled the form of the building.

In dialogue with the terrain, the concrete foundation of the wooden house lies in three staggered planes that follow the movement of the landscape. In a similar manner, the roof surface, overgrown with local grass and moss, slopes partly towards and partly with the hill.
