Villa Bugda, Humble villa blends in with nature - Reykjavik, IS

Key themes

At the edge of a big lake and a national park we have projected a humble villa that respect to its surrounding nature, by minimizing its footprint, making a sculpted organic composition and by using natural materials and a green roof. The unique shape of the house ensures views of the national park without cutting surrounding trees. A big, sculptured roof protects the house and terrace from rain and sun, while blending in with the landscape in a subtle manner.
