The Langitangi Country House designed by Krads, located in the area of Kiðjaberg in Iceland’s south, enhances that rugged terrain with a Brutalist concrete facade.

The summerhouse is made up of raw concrete blocks which form two volumes under a single roof. The home is spread horizontally along the site, sinking into the contours of the land in the process. The unique topography seems to hide the home, while its rough exterior integrates with the natural surroundings.

The interior of the most features a minimalistic aesthetic. The linear layout comes with expansive glazing which maximizes the views throughout the home. These unrivaled views stretch across the water and to the mountains in the distance. The home is a stunning contrast to its natural surroundings, though adding a charming element that is both eye-catching and elegant.
