Location: Reykjavík, Iceland

New construction of a single family house for a family of seven. The new two level building is organized around a lightwell on the entry level. The bedrooms are located to the northeast side, whilst the family room and kitchen are at the southwest side enjoying a view of the inlet beyond. The formal dining room and living area continue along the large glazed facade towards the spectacular view of the Reykjanes Peninsula. A large fireplace subdivides the space and provides a vertical anchoring for an open staircase leading to the family rooms on the lower level.
