Solitary Tundra Residences
The Reykjavik House is a Cozy Retreat Amid an Icy Landscape

It’s hard to imagine a dwelling more suited to this splendid snowscape than the Reykjavik House. Planted within a vast and flat setting in Iceland, the residence looks particularly well-matched to the whitewashed ground in the winter months.

A modernist’s dream, the MOOMOO Architects creation is ravishingly rectangular with a bright colorless coating of paint over its entire exterior. Thick walls shelter the warm interior on two sides, turning and continuing across the roof to visually anchor the abode to its plot.

The two long facades of the remote retreat appear remarkably penetrable with sweeping faces of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. With just four rooms and a relatively open-plan arrangement, the magnificently minimalist Reykjavik House is a modern Miesian haven.
