PK Arkitektar is the studio behind the Arborg House, a magnificent icelandic home overlooking a glacial valley on the Hvita river, a body of water located a mere two two hours away from Reykavik. The home boasts a glass wall that faces the glaciers; the kitchen, dining and living spaces (as well as the master suite) are arranged perpendicular to it in order to better enjoy the panoramic view.
The exterior of the home is outfitted in vertically-lined concrete, while the interior is furnished with a combination of teak and concrete, creating an industrial aesthetic with warmth. The wood continues out on the magnificent terrance. The architects note, "Doors and terraces are clad with teak boards that will gradually weather to a colour grade to match the seasonal moss and the broken concrete surface."
The final touch comes in the form of an infinity pool complete with a circular hot tub. There are few things in life that come close to enjoying breath-taking glacial views from the aquatic comforts of this beautiful terrace.
