Informed by the location, the architecture opens towards the east, referencing the volcanic formations of the region, using the materiality of traditional Icelandic architecture. Sustainable, vertical wood siding is stained in a weathered black and weather treated. This is a direct reference to the traditional Icelandic black house, historically treated with tar to protect the wood from the elements. Baltic Driftwood used for the all doors and millwork, naturally strengthened and treated through its journey to Iceland in the saltwater. Turf roofs refer to traditional Icelandic structures to insulate the guest house rooms, while harmoniously connecting to nature and forging a sustainable design.
